"Helio talks about ... KDE 4"

I read that, so I clicked as I was interested to see what someone at a distro thought of how KDE4 is doing. So, it turns out the antepenultimate line of the interview is "I also think KDE 4 will be the next step for the big desktop, but I’m a little biased. [Laughs". As far as I can see, that's the sum total of KDE4 discussion in the article. The quoted portion of the summary wasn't incorrect, but I expected just a little more than that haha

You know what, you're right. Somehow when I wrote that summary (it's mine, so the blame falls on me :>) I had the idea in my head that the article contained more discussion of KDE 4, but it doesn't. I guess I must have got confused as I was chatting with Helio on IRC as I wrote the submission! Sorry ;)

No problem, as we could see in the article, nobody cares about Brazil, not even the government! :-)

I enjoyed reading this article. It was different than many other interviews.
