Re: KDE 1 're-released' for current Fedora

So? There are no links to distribution with KDE 1 to try... Just two screenshots and bunch of words. Also which modern software will work with KDE 1? Firefox? Skype? LibreOffice? K3B?
As for me, It is like resurrecting Windows 95! Totally useless waste of time and energy!

Re: KDE 1 're-released' for current Fedora

As far as I can tell it is a side project aimed at testing an old DE on a modern Linux base, and from what the poster said it went surprisingly well, as for how it would do among today's users I'm not so sure.
One thing I will say is maybe the KDE project team are a little over funded and think it's better to revive an old desktop than to fix some of the (apparently) many issues with KDE5!
I Don't use KDE on my machines though so it makes no difference to me where they put there resources smile but it could mean that some other older DE's could come back into play and be resurrected without too much headache, endless possibilities...
