I do have another apology to make. Though I have no way of knowing specifically how many people, if any, use/look at Newt OS, I can get a general idea of which flavors are more popular by the number of downloads. Of the approximately 170 downloads of the published Newt OS builds, only 15 of those have been of the KDE flavor. While I love the design of KDE, especially with the up and coming Plasma 5, I cannot justify supporting something that I have not done a good job of maintaining, and that has not been especially popular. Because of these reasons, it is with some sadness (but not a lot) that I say farewell to the KDE flavor of Newt OS.
For those 15 of you who downloaded it, and who may be running it, never fear, you will continue to receive support from openSUSE for the foreseeable future. This announcement brings the development and improvement of Newt OS KDE to a stop, at least for now. I will leave both published appliances available for download for those who wish to use them. Who knows, maybe someday I'll have a change of heart, and KDE will return.
