"This week, Nick Petreley rediscovers programming and dips into Qt. Also, don't miss tips on sorting out key configuration problems under Caldera OpenLinux eDesktop 2.4."

"I had to do a little programming recently, something I don't often do anymore. As a result, I've been bitten by that programming bug again. That's what inspired me to look at Zope last week. And it's what drove me to investigate programming for the K Desktop Environment (KDE), one of the many graphical desktop environments for Linux and other versions of Unix."

"KDE is based primarily on a toolkit called Qt... I discovered that Qt actually trains you to think in terms of object-oriented rather than procedural programming. Indeed, spending some time with Qt makes it clear why it is beneficial to write object-oriented code in the first place."
