Howdy KDE users! I've got a good news for you to spend your weekend with an interesting project. As you may already know, the team behind KDE has announced a new open source smartphone OS named "Plasma Mobile" last year. Since it is a collaborative project, they haven't set any timeline to the availability of final release. Last week, KDE team has hosted a poll on their Twitter and Google+ pages and requested the community members to help the KDE developers move forward with Plasma Mobile. As a result, 44% poll participants wanted to test the OS. After a lot of users' request, KDE development team has released x86_64 based Plasma Mobile ISO images, so that you can now download and test Plasma Mobile OS on your Computer or spin up a VM. This is really a great news for KDE fans and for those who wanted to get a glimpse of how it looks like in real time.
