"For as long as I've owned a computer, I've been looking for
Mahjong game. Not a decent Mahjong game, but any at all. Years ago,
I found a monochrome shareware game for DOS, and later I found a
Windows game, but both were soon rendered unusable by developments
in hardware and software. Nor did I ever find a Mahjong game that
ran natively in GNU/Linux -- not, that is, until KDE released
Kajongg a couple of versions ago.
"I am not talking, you understand, about the matching game that
masquerades as Mahjong. That is a game sometimes called Shanghai
that uses Mahjong tiles, but has more in common with solitaire or
patience than true Mahjong."
