KDE 3.5.4 VMware Image Available (KDE.News)

Wow, this "virtual appliance" thing that VMware has started has become
quite a community. Browsing the directory at their web site shows full
Linux installations (the oldest I saw was RH6.2!), as well as
pre-configuration applications such as database engines, firewalls and
other security products, and so on.
But if I'm going to run these things, I'm going to need more than 1GB
of RAM, that's for sure! Fortunately, I'm in the market for a new laptop
anyway, so I'll shoot for a minimum of 2GB. (Compaq's dual-core Turion
TL-50 looks nice.)
