Be ready for the next generation of KDE, enjoy 'Plasma', the new desktop shell and a new look and feel called 'Oxigen', utilize Systemsetting which is KControl replacement , 3-D desktop effects in Kwin and many more interface and usability improvements. However, for those who aren't quite ready to make the leap to KDE 4.0, KDE 3.5 is still available on OpenSUSE DVD.
