Enhancing your work habits with KDE

One Step at a Time

All these options allow you to work and organize yourself in ways that would be impossible on the traditional desktop. Not only that, but they make these new choices accessible and can display them using the full size of the monitor. Best of all, instead of assuming that all users work – or should work – in a particular way and forcing them to change their habits, these desktop options increase the possibilities of how you work, allowing you to fine-tune your desktop in ways that would be impossible on other desktop environments.

In fact, if anything, between the desktop settings discussed here and KDE's other customization options, the main danger is not limiting your work habits but overwhelming you with choices. For this reason, you should explore these options slowly. Try them one at a time or in limited circumstances, trying each for a week or so before you decide whether to adopt or reject each of them or to move on to the next one.

Not all of these features will suit every user, but one thing is sure: After exploring KDE, you will never think of the Linux desktop in the same way again. Very probably, you will find a trick or two that helps you increase your productivity by enabling you to work more quickly and easily.
