People of KDE: Lubos Lunak

Many KDE developers know that Lubos Lunak is a serious developer with a strong grasp of C++ and a penchant for posting helpful hints on the development mailing lists. KDE users will be happy to find out that Lubos is the developer behind the popular KHotKeys, a tool that has received high marks since its first appearance in KDE 1 and that is now a gem in Kicker's menu
editor (in KDE 2/3). Lubos is Tink's interlocutor for this week's The People Behind KDE interview.

That`s consistent: He not only programs vaporware but used one. :-)

Ah ... It was a long time ago, you know ... *counting on fingers* many years ago. I guess it was KDE1.1.1 then. (1.2=1.1+1 ;) ).

Short mnemonic: Highest KDE1 was 1.1.x, highest KDE2 was 2.2.x and highest KDE3 will be 3.3.x?

LOL :)

I laughed my ass off hard at that proposed KDE commercial. :) That's the best one yet.

A bit off topic but did any USians see the new IBM commercials
during the playoffs yesterday?

What happened in it? Different to "The Heist"?

Can you tell me about the IBM COMMERICIALS ON TV? I don't have a tv but am very interested in learning more about the content and style of the IBM tv commercials. Thanks much

Lubos had really helped smooth my entry into KDE development, too. He gave plenty of tips and reviewed my code for the first couple weeks, so here's my 'Cheers' to him! ;)
