Another LinuxWorldExpo has ended in the lovely San Francisco, and the KDE project
was proud to have a booth and present the equally lovely desktop environment. Also

We KDE developers had yet another great time demoing KDE 3.2 (and the 3.3 beta).
Our users wanted to know what kind of new eye candy
was in store for them for the 3.3 beta. We also demonstrated (and discovered!) the cool
new program Komposé.
To the author of this summary, it's clear that the 3.3 release is a turning point for KDE, the
codebase has become stabilized and KDE is becoming faster,
even more bug free, and just a really polished, beautiful and pleasant environment to work in.
KDE received many donations for Xandros Desktop Office,
We want to thank all our users who have made a donation as it will go to assist in bringing
developers to events like the upcoming KDE World Summit
in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Again, a big thank-you to our supporters!
Another big thanks also goes to Novell which contributed
two computers which we demonstrated KDE with. We couldn't have done it without you!
And as a special bonus, we had contests on Thursday in which the sound of the words "I Love KDE"
permeated the entire show floor.
