Gentoo KDE3 Deprecation Notice

Filed under
Gentoo

After multiple setbacks we have finally managed to stabilise KDE4 on both major desktop architectures (amd64 and x86), with other teams to follow.

And another one bites the dust. Ya know people are still wanting to hang on to KDE 3.5.10.

The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
