Wow, looks very nice. This is great for the times when I still have to use Windows instead of Linux. BTW is it possible to remove the Windows taskbar and replace it with the panels from KDE 4? they are so much more nice and powerful.

How you managed to get working plasma which Windows bar, and same time, not get corrupt background. I test KDE for Windows 4.2.3 in a Windows XP SP3 inside a VirtualBox machine, and I get corrupeted background which plasma, and same time I lost windows taskbar. I try using emerge desktop to get a taskbar and a trayicon, but I get the corrupted background yet.

Step 3 : Create a new text file and type following command:

rasdial "Broadband Connection" username password

Broadband Connection = Name of the Connection you use to connect, you can find it in Control Panel -> Network Connections

Amarok 2 screenshot peview! :)

Added some Amarok on windows screenshots :)

For those who don't know about Amarok, Amarok 2 is the free cross platform music player, with support for album art, lyrics, Wikipedia and integration.

Amarok 2 is not out yet as it is going to be released with KDE 4.2 sometime in January 2009 before KDE 4.2 :) in 1 to 3 months, Amarok team released beta 2 few days ago, Amarok 2 is cross platform i.e. available for Mac, Windows & Linux (:D). As my Arch installation was screwed up so I'm on Kubuntu, they have a nice repository to try nightly builds of Amarok/KDE4 (project neon), following screenshots are bit old as they are taken from my Arch Installation.

It supports integration, Jamendo, Magnatune, Shoutcast Radio service,Mp3tune service etc...

the best feature I like about Amarok2 is Dynamic Playlist.

for collection and statistics it uses MySQL embedded

Lyrics script fetches lyrics as soon as you play the song

Internet Services:
