### KDE 4.1 in Windows XP SP3

I had a little problem when I tried to install KDE 4.1b1 under Windows XP SP3, but was eventually able to fix it by installing the Microsoft Virtual C++ 2005 SP1 redistributable instead of the MSVC++ 2005 one that came with KDE 4.

After that it was amazing to see the KDE applications work pretty well natively under windows. And some KDE software is just really, really good and better than anything else you can get to run on windows.
