The K Desktop Environment, a powerful graphical desktop environment,
combines the ease of use, contemporary functionality, and outstanding
graphical design with the technological superiority of the Kubuntu
operating system. KDE version 3.5.5 is the current stable release and
Kubuntu 6.10 is the first distribution to include it.
Digikam is now included by default. This advanced digital
photo management application provides you with the tools
necessary to view, manage, edit, enhance, organise, tag and
share photographs. Organising both photos and photo albums
is a snap with Digikam as it allows you to sort chronologically,
by directory layout, or by custom collections.
Networking and Printer Sharing
Zeroconf and print sharing let you browse the local network
for available services. Both are now simple to setup and
maintain requiring nothing more than ticking a box to enable the feature.
System Settings has been improved with Kubuntu 6.10.
The layout was redesigned, simplifying the structure
and flow, providing users with an easier system administration
environment. System settings modules are now split into two
categories. The main category which you see upon opening System
Settings is the General settings, and the second category is the Advanced settings.
