Graphics, User Interfaces The desktop metaphor has served our computing needs well for the last decade. It has started however, to show its age over the last years. For office users it is still adequate but for everyone else it is often awkward and slow. Since a computer is no longer confined in the office, but in some cases serves also as the entertainment hub in our living rooms, new User Interfaces are required. In some areas the foundations are already in place while in others users are silently suffering every day, having to cope with inefficient and unproductive UIs.

Just compare Karbon14 and Inkscape and forget all the crap about GTK/C/Gnome vs. Qt/C++/KDE. Languages and widgets don't matter. People matter.

allright, allright. people matter. but working on for example open-office is like driving a ferary while continually pushing the brake. not really efficient. that's what i'm trying to say.

you can spend 1 manyear on OO.o and write 5 features, and 1 manyear on Koffice and write 20 EQUIVALENT features...
