| You can also play Santa yourself and show up with your list in hand. Many 
| people would appreciate a little help with the installation process, so you 
| can just load the software for them -- or even install a Linux distro like 
| Ubuntu or Fedora that comes bundled with lots of basic applications most 
| people will find helpful. Installing Linux is so easy these days, almost 
| anyone can do it -- but you can keep that piece of news totally secret!     


KDE 4.0 will be released just before Xmas (they call it a Christmas present).
