Yesterday I started putting together
a list of operating
systems/distributions and architectures on which KDE 2.x compiles and runs. It is far from
complete but already lists three BSDs, eight Linuxes and four other

the list. Instructions for contributing are here.
Trolltech, creators of the excellent cross-platform GUI library Qt on which KDE is based, announced today a new license for Qt/Windows.

Long time follower and developer Michael Goffioul is our final guest on the People Behind KDE before the summer break. Michael is the one responsible for a very important new feature of KDE 2.2: the printing system. Thank you, Michael, for tackling this thorny issue.
