Microsoft Microsoft presented the results for its second quarter of the 2010 fiscal year yesterday, which ended on December 29 2009. As it turns out, thanks to sales of Windows 7, Microsoft experienced a record quarter, which is especially welcome after the previous two lacklustre ones. It sold 60 million Windows 7 licenses during this record quarter.

Priorities are also in the wrong place. KDE devs keep pushing for KHTML when it is so far behind the times, it's not even funny. Instead, they could be working on WebKit, but that's just not "free" enough for them, or whatever the problem is.


KDE is committed to supporting KHTML through the 4.x release cycle, so dropping it is not an option. Besides, while I'll admit that KHTML may not be cutting edge, it is still very usable, a fact made more impressive considering that it is developed by a handful of people. It's worth remembering that the whole reason KHTML was chosen by Apple (versus Gecko) was the code base. It's no surprise that WebKit passed it by once Apple, and then others, poured resources into it.

It's still worth remembering where WebKit came from, though.

Having said that, you may want to give this a read, because clearly not all the KDE developers are pushing KTHML because it's "free"(?), or whatever.
