KDE on Windows

I have to use Microsoft Windows on my laptop due to several required applications which only run on Windows. Due to this fact I lost a little bit sight of KDE over the last years.

While reading a blog post about the latest KDE 4 isn’t too bad after all I remembered that the KDE project started a port of the major KDE applications to Windows a few years ago.

It seems that this project is very active and is producing impressive results.

They even have an installer for Windows.

Unfortunately when I tried to use KNode I received a memory error. For details please see the KNode Bug report .

But I assume that solving this issue will only be a matter of time and that soon I’ll be able to use the powerful KDE Personal Information Manager (PIM), e.g. Kmail, Kalendar, KNode, on Windows.

Many thanks to the KDE team!
