life is not fair ;(

And in unrelated note; can you explain to me why kiker is actively developed in trunk, I thought it is supposed to be merged with kdesktop to form the sexy plasma.

we need to extract the source which will be reused from kicker before we can kill it and make a plasmoid from it. just like we did with kdesktop -> krunner ;) i'm sure kicker will go soon.

kicker isn't actively developed in trunk. we keep it building and it essentially runs, but that's done basically just so that we have a panel in the meantime. =) there's not much effort (near zero, actually) being put into kicker in trunk.

looks like the booth ist way to small :>>>>>

well, the KDE booth and Scribus swapped places on Saturday morning (Thanks, Franz for making this happen!). So while all open booths aren't that big, KDE now has one of those which are more accessible from visitors.

Is there a even link to this CeBIT?? The article is strangely/suspiciously lacking in details about this event. I have my doubts that this is really the world's largest computer trade show... never even heard about it in any magazines. What does it stand for?

Try these links:
and yes, it is the largest expo.

CeBIT now has a number of sister exhibitions and conferences around the world.
In particular, OpenCeBIT is in Sydney 1-3 May, in conjunction with CeBIT.
No sign of KDE so far, though:
