From LinuxPlanet: "The first alpha of KDE version 3 is out there, and in keeping with its status as a first alpha, it ain't soup yet.
I downloaded and built it over the weekend, and used it a little, so I have a few impressions. A lot of applications have been ported over, mostly imperfectly. This, in turn, is due
in part to the beta status of QT-3.0. But before we get to a discussion of KDE3, a little tutorial on how you would go about building it if you were me. It requires an orderly
approach, which anyone looking at my desk would recognize as an alien idea around here."
