Congratulations! Well deserved!

Excuse me for sounding so ignorant, but which one is Linus? I've never seen a picture of him before, so I don't know what he looks like.

The man in the middle (on the computer) is Ralf Nolden (KDevelop Team),left from him stands Linux Thorvalds and on the right side Martin Konold(KDE).

Title says it all. Linus is the fat guy in the grean shirt.

Looking at that picture you have to ask; "Who says computers arn't bad for your eys ?"

GOOD question and thanks for asking it coz I didn't dare to (beeing a newbie you're supposed to find it all in the FAQ's and the HOWTO's)

Good news for KDE developer and user alike.
They really deserved it.
But, I just wonder whether the award presented because this Linux Community exhibition was held in Germany rather than in US.
Well, we all now that many linux users in US is Gnome fanatics.

I don't think so, just read:
KDE Desktop Is Show Favorite at LinuxWorld Expo
. This one was held in San Jose, California. Personally I don't think that there is much difference between US and Germany but I can't offer any numbers.

KDE you did a GREAT job and you are the reason that I have switched from Windows to LINUX (I even gave up the IMHO best compiler in the world: Visual Age C++) about a year ago and I am now using kdevelop (which is great too). Just want to say THANK YOU for this excellent desktop! Great job!!!

"we all now that many linux users in US is Gnome fanatics"

well, I'm American and I use KDE. I know many Americans who use KDE. I think you are refering to the Gnome foundation and the decision by major vendors to choose Gnome as the standard unix desktop. I don't agree with their decision.

I will always use KDE as long is it relatively bug free and continues to improve. I congratulate the KDE team on a job well done. There are many of us who are anxiously awaiting the official release of KDE 2.0. Go KDE!

The beauty of it is we don't have to agree with their decision because we have a choice. Kudos to the KDE developpment team for their hard work! You guys deserve the recognition
