Shuttle XS29f: Linux Looks Great in Green Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Thursday, June 25 2009 @ 05:14 PM EDT

Tuesday, May 05 2009 @ 02:54 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

What got me to look at KDE 4.2.2 was the unofficial release of openSUSE 11.1 'Reloaded' with KDE 4.2.2 packages. As Joe Brockmeier, openSUSE's community manager told me, "This is an installable live CD, so it's good for anybody who wants to run 11.1 without having to grab all of the updates since December, and for users who want to test out the latest & greatest KDE without having to re-do their system."
