Unofficial KDE 3.5 Live CD for openSUSE 11.1

Quoting "Unofficial KDE 3.5 Live CD for openSUSE 11.1" story from openSUSE News:

KDE logoWant classic KDE on openSUSE, without the full DVD download? Carlos Goncalves has you covered. openSUSE 11.1 Live CDs and USB images featuring KDE 3.5 are now available for download.

Created by openSUSE community member Carlos Goncalves, the KDE 3.5 Live CD and USB images contain openSUSE 11.1 plus several key updates.

In addition to KDE 3.5, the Live CD offers OpenOffice.org 3.0, Smolt, Amarok 1.4.10, KDEPIM3, Firefox 3.0.4, K3b, and many other useful applications. You can see the entire package list here: package-lists-openSUSE

And, of course, openSUSE has the current KDE releases covered as well. You can download the official openSUSE 11.1 KDE4 Live CDs based on KDE 4.1.3, or if you want to follow KDE development, Stephan Binner has created a KDE Four Live CD featuring KDE 4.2 Beta 2.

Note that the KDE 3.5 live CD is an "unofficial" release. Even though it's not a formal release, we're excited by the work Carlos has put into supporting KDE 3.5 and showing what can be done with the build service. Want to create your own Live CD featuring openSUSE?

Hi,

First, sorry for my bad English.
I like KDE 3.5.x KDE is for me the better version, for power users is the new KDE 4 version is not really good, I think it is too cluttered and full of eye candy, the daily work on her too cumbersome and Slowly beat.
The old KDE 3 works faster, is easier to use and easier. Thanks for this nice release, I hope you make another publication based on OSS was 3.11 with KDE 3.5.x for the many users very helpful.

THX Riva

Thanks Carlos for making this possible. KDE 4 is an abomination in my view. Who knows what they were thinking when they came up with the totally useless and dysfunctional menu system. I have always loved KDE since version 1 and it just got better through ver 3.5. I have tried several times to use KDE 4 and cannot get use to it.
