[News] KDE Expands to the Web, Gets Support from ReactOS

Hash: SHA1

KDE's Expanded Desktop vs. Online Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| For example, in the current release of KDE, you can use the new geolocation 
| support to connect to locate other KDE users nearby so that you can socialize 
| or exchange information. If you want information about the music album you 
| are playing in Amarok, you can access Wikipedia without troubling to open up 
| your browser. If you want to download your photos from Facebook, you can do 
| so from within digiKam. Although these are far from the first applications to 
| access the web directly, the extent to which the latest releases of KDE 
| applications are doing so amounts to an integration of the desktop and online 
| resources that provides a clear alternative to the idea of online 
| applications.          


Another Platform for KDE

| While the KDE community busied itself with preparations for the 4.3 release,

| ReactOS is still in alpha stage and not recommended for everyday use.

Haiku and ReactOS "Pair Up" at LinuxWorld Expo 08

| and ReactOS who will be sharing the exhibit space with Haiku this year.
