KDE The KDE 4 release team started a discussion about a possible release schedule for KDE 4. Of course nothing is set yet but the topic is now hot and some interesting problems and point of views come up. In other but related news Oxygen hit the mirrors, or better, kdelibs.

Have you tried GNUstep? It has very excellent support in FreeBSD. Better than most (perhaps all) Linux distributions.

"Have you tried GNUstep? It has very excellent support in FreeBSD. Better than most (perhaps all) Linux distributions."

Nice you mentioned it! Yes, I have. I feel familiar with ObjectiveC (because I prefer C oder C++, and ObjC feels like something as an OO wrapper around C while C++ and C# are completely different languages) and like the clean and professional look, which is a good "selling argument" if it's up to professional software solutions (such as testing, diagnostics, data archiving and processing in clinical psychology / psychiatry).

Another thing that makes it superior (I hope I'm not insulting anyone with the use of this word) to KDE 3 and 4 is that it has very low hardware requirements. This'll make a GNUstep based product attractive for those who do not want to buy a whole new computer park.

One problem could be the field of crossplattformimg, i. e. using GNUstep applications on Solaris and MacOS X...
