And for all the daredevils out there, Rex Dieter from the Fedora KDE SIG has pushed it into the KDE- RedHat (testing) repository’s for Fedora 10 (the updates also have been pushed to Rawhide).

Fedora 11 countdown counter part 2

Usually I’m not fond of posting blog entry’s so close to each other, although nicu has kindly pointed out to me that there is an official Fedora countdown counter (https://fedoraproject.org/en/counter).

Since a few days they switched to a new trunk containing the upcoming version 2.1 and I must say it’s looking pretty damn sweet […]

A journey into open-source software

Yup, yet another attempt at a blog. This time about open-source software and related topics. As of this weekend I’m officially running a dual boot machine at home (Fedora 10 -KDE 4.2 beta 2 / Windows XP). At work I’ve been using Fedora for a while now due to some sort of company policy (I […]
