PC silicon vendor Via Technologies is holding a contest that encourages "girls" of any age (over 18) to hone their gaming skills at a world-class gaming facility in Sweden, where they'll be treated to some high-powered gaming training with Via's "girlz 0f destruction" gaming ambassadors.
The important warning first: this is only for developers and not openSUSE 10.2 stuff! KDE has released a first development snapshot of KDE4 and the KDE:KDE4 project in the openSUSE Build Service has RPMs of qt, kdelibs, kdepimlibs and kdebase for SUSE Linux 10.0 and up.

This snapshot is not for end users.

The stock has fallen 20 percent since closing at the highest level in nearly six years in April.
