Education, Qt and KDE

I wanted to make mention of a milestone for a for longtime Qt user, Skolelinux. Today they launched the latest version of their all-encompassing education software solution (Skolelinux 5.0).

Skolelinux is a great Qt-based project, and something that has been close to my heart over the nine years it has been in existence. Millions of kids are using a Qt-based KDE desktop thanks to the efforts of the Skolelinux group.

So congratulations to everyone involved, and may their amazing success continue.

Today was also a landmark for KDE with a new version of the KDE Software Compilation (4.4) launching.

KDE 4.4 takes advantage of Qt 4.6’s improved performance and lower resource requirements to make it really fly on a wider range of hardware.

In short it’s a good time to be in free software, and an even better time to be building your free software with Qt!
