KDE 4 to feature OS X style Dashboard widgets

By Justin Mann on
KDE 4 is something a lot of us using Linux for the desktop are anticipating. According to one of the lead developers of the KDE project, release 4 will feature Dashboard widgets, much in the same way that is used for BSD-based OS X. Although that may sound like a minor change, it means that code for widgets between both OS X and KDE will be “almost” seamless and be able to function in both environments. Not only does this spurn further development, it bridges more of the gap that exists between PC and Mac, for good or for bad. Some believe this will result in more “Apple” creations becoming standard on the desktop in the years to come.
