    This looks very promising indeed. I'm definatley going to give this a go when I've got the time. KDE on steroids?

    It is awesome noons. A bit rough round the edges perhaps but with huge potential. It reminds me of lxde but written in qt. Combine with openbox and qt/kde apps and it's a joy.

    Your future desktop? Maybe, maybe not. Here's a short review and tour of the Razor-qt desktop environment based on Qt technologies, with repository setup and installation instructions on Fedora 16, desktop overview, edit mode, configurations & settings, and issues like theme inconsistencies, order and look of desktop elements, natural UI flow, crashes, and more.

    A fair review I think. I've not experienced the crashes myself, however I do agree on the theming inconsistancies etc. One must remember this is alpha software so can only improve.

    I've been messing around with Trinity on debian for the last couple of weeks and it really amazes me how light and quick kde3 is/was. I think if razorqt matures maybe it might fill that gap left by kde3 on older hardware where kde4 is a little too heavy?
