KDE 4.5 Screen Shots

KDE 4.5 Screen Shots are here, I have successfully updated the KDE 4.5 Beta on my openSuse 11.2 Machine, See the screen shots of KDE 4.5 Screen Shots , after these updates I have solved another problem with Amarok Audio Player, Initially it had no sound.openSuse with KDE 4.5 is not so light or fast in machines having less than 1GB RAM. In my experience it is not a lightweight desktop distribution, when we compare with other linux distros, openSUSE 11.2 has a good Network Manager. Overall openSuse 11.2 with KDE 4.5 is an excellent release, I am using Compaq Prasario CQ61. I have put more screen shots of openSUSE 112. with KDE 4.5 here. In my experience openSUSE 11.2 runs faster, smoother, utilize  power more wisely, has a more polished desktop, and simpler installation. I got a decent, colorful choice of programs, lots of useful utilities, plus centralized management by YaST, which is smarter and easier to use than ever before. The one sore point is package management - it's slow. It works great and makes some quite intelligent choices, but waiting a whole minute for it to complete caching the repository info is too much. If only this could be solved - somehow, openSUSE 11.2 would be perfect. When they release the Final we hope it will be solved.
