"non-open mindset in KDE?"
-----------------

Omega, from what other stuff I read by Aaron J. Seigo (he is blogging quite exetensively, and he is very active on various KDE mailing lists), I would conclude that this guy has an incredibly open mindset.

However, I tend to disagree with his thoughts on that particular topic. The discussion in the KDE camp is quite controversial, and it started because there is actual work done in porting KDE to Windows. (BTW, there is _no_ work done at all to port Gnome to Windows. And no, OpenOffice.org and Firefox are *not* Gnome applications. Both use their own toolkits.)

I tend to agree more with another blog entry by another guy, called by the nick "pipitas":
