KDE 4.0 on HP 2133 Mini-Note

Last week HP announced it's Mini-Note PC with preloads of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10. Our heros of the Mobile Devices Team have worked the last weeks on that. The Mini-Note is available in different configurations starting at $499 (that would be only 313 Euro if applied for Europe without surcharge).

Some Interesting Summer of Code Ideas

Only three days left to apply as a student for the Summer of Code for either KDE or openSUSE ideas. So how about spending this week-end thinking what you could do this summer? Let me list some ideas I would like to see done:

openSUSE Accepted to Summer of Code

The participating mentoring organizations for the Google Summer of Code 2008 have been just announced and the openSUSE project is among. If you're a qualifying student and want to earn some money by contributing to an Open Source project, please start discussing with us your (eg Build Service, KDE or YaST related) idea. We will also propose some ideas during the week and put them online in the openSUSE wiki.

KDE Four Live 1.0.66

It has been over a month since the last version and it's still a month until KDE 4.1 Alpha 1 so it seems a good time to create a new Live CD with the openSUSE KDE 4.0.66 snapshot packages. It contains some Kickoff/Plasma features I have been worked on in the last weeks like the resizable Kickoff or adding/removing panels. Noticeable absent is my patch to move plasmoids on panels which is not in trunk (yet), you can by all means expect it to appear in our packages before openSUSE 11.0 gets released. :-)

CeBIT 2008 Impressions

Yesterday I made an excursion to CeBIT. Despite some major names missing and three halls staying closed it's the world's largest IT fair - and my legs remind me today of my marathon. Many halls were rather boring, the ones where the World Cyber Games took place were in opposite rather crowded. Dunno why watching others playing computer games is popular. Or the spectators were all their girl-friends who had free entrance on World Women Day. AMD wins the biggest bag contest.

Spreading Out

It's this time of the year when all the events seem to happen at almost the same time: the upcoming week-end Dirk and Will will be at FOSDEM and give a talk "KDE 4 on openSUSE 11" on Sunday morning in the openSUSE Developer Room. The week-end after I will be at the openSUSE booth of Chemnitzer Linux-Tage.
