On to Fedora 23 and New Tools

Even though Fedora 23 isn’t quite out the door yet, officially, I have been poking at the alpha and beta because… that’s what you do. Well, it’s what I do, anyway. Call it a form of desktop wanderlust, I am always itching to see what’s next and what might be new and fun around the corner. (This also has the benefit of hitting bugs before folks who feel slightly less adventurous.)

I’ve put Fedora 23 onto a ThinkPad T430s and decided to go with KDE rather than GNOME this time around, and to experiment with different mail clients as well.

Right now, I’m tinkering with KMail – past attempts at KMail have resulted in dissatisfaction, but I’m giving it another go. Thunderbird has been disappointing lately, and I’m curious whether I can adopt the whole KDE PIM / KOrganizer suite. With any luck it’ll go smoothly and I can blog about that. Or it may fail spectacularly and I can try to find time to blog about that, we’ll see.

It’s been a while since I used KDE for any amount of time. If you have some KDE tips and tricks, please share!
