KDE Voted Free Software Project of the Year
Linux Format magazine has unveiled its annual Reader Awards (PDF) for 2008 and KDE won a 'landslide' victory in the category of Free Software Project of the year in recognition of the 'incredible' work done with KDE 4. Amarok, Qt, Konqueror and the KDE-based Asus Eee PC were also recognised in the awards.
As noted in the Linux Format article, it takes a 'lot of hard work, some serious code fu and above all a commitment to the free software ideals' to succeed in the Reader Awards. KDE can be proud to be named the best Free Software Project - a wide category encompassing any project producing free software, including the likes of Compiz (runners up in this category) and giants of free software such as the Mozilla Foundation and Apache projects.
