The following are a select few from the sum total of features that KDE 4.4.0 sports.
- Plasma Netbook workspace - An interface specifically optimized for mobile devices with smaller screens. Similar to Ubuntu Netbook Remix or Moblin but distribution independent.
- Improved window management - KDE 4.4.0 brings with it enhanced application switching using Alt+Tab keyboard shortcut. You can now maximize and tile windows by dragging them to the edge of the screen.
