Mac: KDE for Mac
Posted by cascadehush on January 10, 2007
KDE is a powerful Free Software graphical desktop environment for Linux and Unix workstations and the upcoming 4th major release version will be also be developed native for Mac OS X.
The main focus of this Mac port is NOT to give you a new desktop, but to open up lots of cool KDE applications to Mac users.
I love KDE. I ran Simply Mepis 3.3 for a few months early in 2005. KDE is the best thing about Linux. Without the grooviness of KDE, I probably would not have stuck with Linux for so long.
I did try a Windows XP port of KDE, some months back. It wasn’t particularly stable or useful (yet) but it was great to see that we won’t need Linux to run KDE, or at least you not when the ports are done.
You can go to the Home of KDE on Mac OS X to learn about it and download the files. It’s still in alpha, so I won’t try it myself yet. But like a lot of things in life, it’s just nice to know it is there.
