KDE 4 for Windows and Mac

By Justin Mann on
KDE, one of the most popular desktop suites for Linux/Unix/BSD systems, recently hit a milestone when they released the long-awaited version 4.0 of the suite. Promising it was a hint of even more good things to come, 4.0 represented a huge undertaking to revamp KDE. Now, apparently, the KDE team also wants to expand the platform even further. They want to go beyond existing OS support and reach into the Mac and Windows world.

To start off, the Koffice suite and the Amarok media player are already being ported to these platforms, using the newer Qt suite that makes easier portability possible. This is actually a very interesting project. Controversy aside, it would be interesting to see an environment that could be found on Linux, Macs or Windows and remain uniform among them. If you're interested in the project, you can already try it yourself.

While not strictly new, it is actually refreshing to see a project like this being undertaken.
