Cross Platform PIM on a Stick

Filed under

Available for memory sticks on Windows or Linux, the new release KDE-PIM/Platform independent lets you carry around your favourite KDE applications and your personal data in the palm of your hand. This device independent software can import your data directly from Outlook and sync it with KDE-PIM running on other computers. Based on the great work of the KDE-PIM developers, KDE-PIM/Pi is available for Windows, Linux and the Zaurus PDA and includes platform independent versions of KAddressbook and KOrganizer (Screenshots).

KOrganizer/Pi (KO/Pi) is based on the embedded version 1.08 beta of KOrganizer from Cornelius Schumacher. Lutz Rogowski has added many features to suite the needs of other platforms and mobile devices. KAddressbook/Pi (KA/Pi) is a port of KAddressbook to the Zaurus and has been started by Ulf Schenk. KDE-PIM/Pi replaces the KDE libraries with a Qt-only wrapper library called "micro KDE". A precompiled "all-in-one" memory stick edition for Windows and Linux and other packages can be downloaded from the SourceForge project page. More info is available at the project homepage.

At the Heart of OpenStack Evolution

As it matures, OpenStack's parallel to Linux is clearer. Linux emerged 20 years ago as a somewhat exotic challenger to proprietary operating systems. Today, it is one of the most popular and widely used OSes. However, Linux still exists in a market of mixed use. It's likely that OpenStack will be subject to the same effect, becoming a viable option among a number of cloud infrastructures. Read more
