Kontact: A Review  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, November 01 2006 @ 03:57 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEFrom element 14:

Applications is what will bring people to Linux. It already has stability and security. Stable eye candy isn’t far away with XGL-Beryl/Compiz and such. I’m sure Linux has seen a rise in popularity partly due to Firefox. I can’t count the number of people who discovered Amarok audio player, and never wanted to leave Linux purely for this reason. The OS (regardless of distro) still has a little way to go with usability for the average user who knows just enough to be dangerous on a computer, but beyond that things are shaping up just fine.

But Firefox and Amarok aren’t the only apps to wow people with. The open source world looks to be succeeding in the e-mail realm as well. Introducing Kontact, KDE’s Personal Information Management application. Not only does this app blow the pants off other open source e-mail efforts (Thunderbird and Evolution), but it blows the pants off Outlook.

SQO-OSS Project Launched with KDE  View Printable Version 
Saturday, October 28 2006 @ 09:04 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEFrom KDE News:

KDE together with the Athens University of Economics and Business and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and other partners has launched SQO-OSS. This is a two-year multi-million euro project that aims to develop new tools and techniques for measuring Open Source quality.

SQO-OSS aims to assist European software developers in improving the quality of their Zode, and to remove one of the key barriers to entry for Open Source software by providing scientific proof of its quality to businesses. This two-fold approach which benefits both developers and users is complemented by a broad definition of the notion of quality. Quality encompasses not only the source code of the project (KDE's SVN repository is one of the largest in the world) but also the project's "soft" data like the community around it. By analysing both the code and the communication (like bug reports and mailing list discussions) that leads to changes in the code we can get a better picture of the quality of KDE's software and its processes.
