KDE Trying To Beat Google And Longhorn To The Desktop
As reported by ZDNet, developers of the KDE desktop for Linux are planning to include, in their own words, "a Google like search system" for the desktop. Their goal is to complete it in 18 months, while Longhorn is expected for 2007. Competition is good for everyone, and Windows users can be glad to know that Microsoft is guaranteed to take all the good features from KDE and incorporate them into WinFS. They always do.
