A Fireside Chat on KDE Usability

Recently, our very own Fabrice Mous asked if I might write an article about usability and KDE development. At first I was hesitant, and not just because I have a lot more hacking to get done before KDE 3.4 is released (which is soon). I often get asked about usability and the Open Source process, and even I sometimes get tired of having the same old conversations over and over.

I recently got a chance to interview George Staikos, the official representative for the KDE project in North America. He addresses some questions on the current status of the KDE project, and about the problems they have faced.

Q: It has been eight years since the start of the KDE Project. At the very end of the project announcement, Matthias said that he is a "dreamer". Has his dream become a reality or is KDE still someway off?
