KDE4 on the mac

From http://kde.opendarwin.org/

"These packages are universal binaries, for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).

They may not work. They may not even install. They may make your monitor explode in a shower of glass. EVEN LCDs, WHICH DON'T CONTAIN ANY GLASS! (ed. I've now been told LCDs are not plastic, but do, in fact contain glass, but the point remains!) They may make your children grow horns, and cause the people in your neighborhood to explode spontaneously while doing the Macarena. They will rip out your eyeballs, and eat your soul with a really dull spoon, laughing and cackling while forcing Cheerios up your nose. They will make your intestines explode in a rain of confetti, while evil clowns bite your feet.

In short, we're not ready for bug reports yet, we know there's lots of broken bits, just be patient and look here for updates, and in the meantime, here's a little toy to play with."

Sounds fun. Although I think i'll wait until he builds some binaries for me to play with, its encouraging to know there's work being done already. I've particularly been hanging out for a universal version of KOffice, but I think that's going to be a bit further in the works- speaking of which, the discussion paper about KOffice 2's features seems pretty damn cool.

In the meantime, I think i'll try out an alpha of openoffice2 as a universal binary... god knows, that might make my monitor explode more than building the aforementioned KDE4 packages...
