KDE: Breaking the Network Barrier

Steve Mallett writes “In this month’s KDE: From the Source, entitled Breaking the Network Barrier, George Staikos takes us on a walk-through of KDE’s desktop networking protocol handlers in the vein of sftp:// webdav:// and a few really nifty ones I wasn’t aware of like info:/ perldoc:/ and tar:/. The entire KDE desktop environment is decked out like this, and as George puts it, “Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X have a long way to go to catch up with the robust, transparent functionality that KDE has provided since version 2.0.””
