LinuxTag 2003: A Great Success

As always, the KDE Team participated in this year's LinuxTag which took place in Karlsruhe, Germany. LinuxTag is a platform for Free Software projects and Linux related companies with an exhibition area and a wide range of talks. With more than 19,500 visitors, this year's LinuxTag has become the largest Linux event in the world. Even away from the KDE booth, there was a lot of KDE
stuff to see. (Update: Pictures of KDE/GNOME dinner added.)

Report: KDE at the Linux Expo UK

Last week I launched a call for help when the KDE booth at the LinuxUser & Developer Expo 2003 dropped in my lap. I have written a report of the events leading up to and happening at the expo. It was a good expo, and KDE fared well there. Expect more pictures to be online soon.

Report from Brazil's Software Livre Forum 2003

Helio Chissini de Castro of Conectiva recently gave a KDE speech at Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil and was kind enough to write up his experiences for the rest of us. In recent years, Rio Grande do Sul has become a GNU and consequently GNOME stronghold, so prepare yourself for an entertaining if not graphic read!

Alan, or 'alane' as he was known within the Open Source community, was a core member of the team which packages KDE for FreeBSD, and a respected member of the Open Source community outside of KDE.
