Ah, it’s once again one of these articles about this wicked embedded platform Windows CE you think?
Nope, not this time. It is still about Windows though πŸ™‚

As the KDE4.2 release is out and basically everyone talks about it, I got interested myself as well. Being a Windows user myself, I figured that it might be complicated to test this out. But actually there is a project out there, which is exactly targetting people like me: KDE on Windows.

After using the default installer and playing around, I tried out to manually build this thing. By default it uses Qt 4.4.3, but I wanted to go with our repository. Getting some help from the community on #kde-windows at freenode (special thanks to SaroEngels), I managed to let the KDE trunk run against the current Qt 4.5 version.

Now you are probably screaming “Screenshots! Pictures! Videos!” and here you go:

I’ve never been intrigued by ‘vista’ before, very cool. looks like there’s hope for you windows users yet. πŸ™‚

An interesting idea would be to compare win2k/XP+KDE4.2 to Vista — For those looking to get new life out of old hardware.

Why would you want such a solution? Two reasons:
– Best of both worlds – Winapps plus sexy desktop.
– Transition from win32 to Linux/KDE
