KDE My first thought was that this was an April Fool's joke, but as it turns out, this is real (I actually downloaded and tested it). The openSUSE KDE team has created a KDE 2.2.2 live CD using openSUSE 11.1 as a base. It boots like any other live CD, but instead of the latest and greatest KDE 3.x or 4.x desktop, you're presented with a fully functional KDE 2.2.2 desktop. That sure brought back some memories!

OMG, this made me almost cry. However, this is pretty usable and stable desktop, which I remember using and laughing at Gnome 1.4 users... KDE ROCKED, in some way it still does, but there's something broken about it, and I think it's development process (a few articles before is comparison KDE4/Gnome dev process).

I used to use kde 1.x line as well, remember kde 2 being best thing since sliced bread on Mandriva 7.2... I'm old.
