KDE KDE's Aaron Seigo (who owes me a Martini) wrote about a few often-heard misconceptions and questions regarding KDE 4.0, which is supposed to be released January 11th. "Now that 4.0.0 is tagged and out and that bit of worry and concern is behind me for the moment, I wanted to take a moment to talk really bluntly about 4.0. In particular, I'm going to address some of the common memes in fairly random order that I see about kde 3.5 and 4.0. I'm going to speak bluntly (though not rudely) so prepare yourself."

Tbh i didnt really know him well. ( Just that he is some KDE bigshot and that his plasma thing was very alpha :-P )

But listening to that interview (see first post) and reading his blog changed my mind.

He seems to be a cool open source guy. Reminds me of Linus ( with a lot more respect, Linus does not have to care anymore ) and Mark ( without the marketing mumbo jumbo talk ).

I really hope their vision of KDE comes true.
That would be cool!
I wish the whole KDE community all the best!

BTW: Aaron, how is it being a president of a german "eingetragener Verein" ;) ?? Do you have to deal the german bereaucray at all?

Hehe, yeah, Aaron is cool... And I guess he doesn't have much trouble with the German bureaucracy, he's not the only person on the Board. I think it is worthwhile saying Cornelius Schumacher deserves a huge amount of credit for the work he does in the area of paperwork, being treasurer and all.
