,----[ Quote ]
| I’ve now updated to the latest openSUSE KDE4 Packages and got another video
| (first one being: KDE 4.0 RC1+ Video Tour) to add, and it’s one all about the
| new KDE 4.0 KWin composite; that is, the new desktop effects that will be
| available with KDE 4.0.

Report: KDE at The Italian Linux Day 2007 in Rome

,----[ Quote ]
| On October 27th, KDE Italia attended the Italian Linux Day 2007 in Rome at
| the Tor Vergata University. Other cities had their Linux Day throughout Italy
| at the same time. For the people that have never attended to these kind of
| events, it is important to remember that the Italian Linux Day is a day
| dedicated to spreading Free and Open Source Software and specially the
| GNU/Linux Operating System and its software components such as KDE. * *

KWin improvements

,----[ Quote ]
| Speaking of KWin crashes, we're planning to make KWin restart itself in such
| cases (just like Plasma or KRunner) and eventually turn off compositing so
| that you'd always have a usable window manager, even when compositing has
| some problems. *

KDE4 is very attractive for software service companies

,----[ Quote ]
| The next version of KDE4 will run natively on Mac OS X and Windows XP and
| Vista. This means that it is a very attractive platform for software
| development. No other cross-platform toolkit looks as good as Qt and has an *
| equally appealing API. *
