Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Developers of the K Desktop
Environment (KDE), the easy to use, Open Source desktop
environment, today announced the formation of the KDE League, a group of industry
leaders and KDE developers focused on facilitating the promotion,
distribution and development of KDE."
"The founding members of the League include leaders from a
cross-section of the computer industries: Borland, Caldera, Compaq, Corel, Fujitsu-Siemens,
Hewlett-Packard Company, IBM, KDE.com, Klarälvdalens
Datakonsult, theKompany.com, Mandrakesoft, SuSE, Trolltech and TurboLinux. The League is an open
organization and other corporations who support the goals of the
League are encouraged to apply for membership."
"The League will focus on promoting the use of the advanced
Open Source desktop alternative on PCs, workstations and handheld
devices by enterprises and individuals and on promoting the
development of KDE software by third-party developers. The
League will not be directly involved in developing the core KDE
libraries and applications, although League members are encouraged
to contribute to the KDE codebase in the spirit of KDE's wildly
successful 'Bazaar-style' development."
