Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Corel is adopting the K Desktop Environment (KDE) GUI for its NetWinder Linux thin client and thin server machines. The company said today it would participate in the KDE Project, and that NetWinders running KDE would be available next year. Corel already offers a Red Hat-based version of Linux on NetWinders, and recently said it would move over to standard Red Hat. Its latest move will increase KDE's ability to establish itself as a GUI standard for Linux - the lack of one of these is frequently viewed as one of the larger roadblocks in the way of wider acceptance of the open source OS. "This collaboration and the port to the NetWinder gives us an opportunity to deliver our free desktop to even more users," said Uwe Thiem, African region representative of the KDE team. "We are confident KDE will gain widespread acceptance of users because of its outstanding functionality and ease of use." ®
