Kiowa goes KDE!

If you follow this blog, you know that I'm a huge fan of Kiowa Linux. Kiowa is going through various stages of development. The last release was a Gnome desktop environment that really booted fast and featured LinDVD and other goodies.

Matt now tells OneClickLinux that, "Due to popular requests we are bringing back Kiowa Kde edition featuring Kde 3 as well as the Kde4 Edition...a Kde edition Beta coming soon!"

So now, you have your choice. Either Kiowa Linux with the Gnome desktop or the KDE desktop!

And since its KDE 3, the menus are cutting edge. I've attached a couple of snapshots of things to come. (Click on the images to see a larger view) Note the really nice design of KDE's launch menu. It's quite easy to navigate with a neat little routine to help find your most used/favorite apps. I run an earlier beta of Kiowa KDE on my laptop and am really excited to have this KDE upgrade. As soon as download links for Kiowa KDE are available, we'll provide them here. Stay tuned to get Linux.

Could you provide a link for downloading kiowa? The only site I could find was their forum and did not see a download link.

It looks very interesting. I too like kde but am willing to try their Gnome edition until kde is released.
