The Spanish KDE developers together with HispaLinux and ZaragozaWireless are organising a KDE Conference in Zaragoza, Spain on 4th and 5th of November. The talks will be in Spanish and the entrance is free.
Hello! Remember me? I’m the guy who wrote Three reasons to use KDE. This time, I’ll exercise my mind by coming up with three honest reasons not to use KDE. Of course, this is not an original idea either, since it was inspired by Three reasons not to use GNOME.
Sal Cangeloso’s writeup (three reasons to use GNOME) inspired me to talk about the flip side of the coin. Yes, I know it’s smug to pretend that there’s only KDE and GNOME; yet KDE is my desktop of choice, and here’s why. Of course, Sal’s right when he says lists are the effective way to convey information in writing, so I’ll take a page from his book and do so:
The annual KDE World Summit, Akademy, has found a home for 2007 in the vibrant city of Glasgow. The week-long event for contributors to the leading Free Desktop project will be held from 30th June to 7th July 2007 in Scotland's largest city.
The KDE Project yesterday released KOffice version 1.6, the long awaited version of the open source office suite.
Many Linux users are savvy game experts. So, although computer games can be purely for fun, they also can train your mind. KDE's Edutainment suite is proof of that. The suite of packages lets users learn and have fun at the same time.
There are many ways to support and contribute to the KDE project. For people and organisations who wish to contribute to KDE by providing financial support in an ongoing manner, the KDE e.V. now offers the new Supporting Members scheme. KDE e.V. is both excited and proud to announce Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical, as our first Patron of KDE.
KDE just got 10 years old! In a random surfing session I came across screen shots of Slackware, which of course ships with unmodified sources, and the screen shots really appealed to me. I’ve never looked to any other distribution. So what is it that I really like KDE?
Yesterday at 10:00 AM the president of the KDE e.V. Eva Brucherseifer welcomed the audience of the presentation track at the KDE anniversary event at the Technische Akademie Esslingen (TAE) in Ostfildern near Stuttgart, Germany. Keynote speakers were Matthias Ettrich, founder of the KDE project, as well as Klaus Knopper of Knoppix fame. During their presentations they looked back at KDE's successful past 10 years and they offered their thoughts about the future of KDE and Free Software.
It's party time. Today we celebrate the tenth birthday of KDE. It all started with the famous post by Matthias Ettrich on October 14th 1996 calling for programmers to create a piece of free software he called KDE. I digged up the oldest screenshot of a program I worked on that I could find, a KOrganizer version from 1998, this was just before KDE 1.0.
On tonight's People Behind KDE we present a coder who has been the driving force behind not only the premier free software database client, Kexi, but also single handedly ported kdelibs to win32. Find out how he achieved such feats of development hights while still breading a heard of crickets for his chameleon in our interview with Jaroslaw Staniek.
The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.5, a maintenance release for the latest generation of the most advanced and powerful free desktop for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes.
KDE will ship the 5th maintenance update to KDE 3.5 next week. This release includes a bunch of bug fixes, improved language support, a new version of kopete and tons more.
KDE is going to celebrate its 10th anniversary. On 14th October 1996, Matthias Ettrich announced the beginning of a project which is now one of the biggest and most exciting open source projects. To celebrate this event we'd like to invite you to our little birthday party on Friday, October 13th, 2006. Matthias Ettrich and Mark Shuttleworth will be keynote speakers.
Open source software developers, joined by Intel and IBM technical staff, exchange knowledge and plan ODF supporting projects; OpenDocument Developer Kit proposed.
The KPhotoAlbum splash screen contest ended today, and a winner has been found, namely Jaroslav Holan's submission. Congratulation and thanks for all the nice splash screen submitted.
Thanks to a comment by I became aware of the development of the future KDE 4 menu: codename “Raptor”. Ratpor will be a plasmoid, a Plasma widget, and therefore building upon newest KDE 4 technology.
Also: kde.org redesigned

Last Wednesday the KDE regional groups Birds of a Feather session took place at Akademy 2006, Dublin. The focus of this BoF session was to share experiences that regional KDE-groups have had in building a community. A regional group is generally country based, e.g. KDE-IT for Italy and KDE-NL for Netherlands.
This week the People Behind KDE series is featuring Philip Rodrigues. He mostly is active as a documentation contributor, but he also does user support and some coding. Enjoy the interview with tonight's star.
