"KDE 4.0 was a bit rough around the edges, but KDE 4.1 was released in July that brought forth many refinements. The KDE community is currently preparing for the release of KDE 4.2 in January with even more features. Trolltech had also released the Qt tool-kit used by the K Desktop Environment under the GPLv3 license this year, was acquired by Nokia, and then renamed to Qt Software.

"WINE 1.0:

"When the WINE project began as a compatibility layer to run Windows programs atop Linux, the Windows 3.1 operating system was dominating the market. It took fifteen years for this free software project to come out with a version 1.0 release, but it reached this milestone in June. WINE now is able to run many Windows programs out there, and even many OpenGL / DirectX video games, but the development community has been continuing in a steadfast manner working to prepare the WINE 1.2 stable release for next year. WINE is now even being used by Google for their Picasa Linux port as well as other uses."
