The annual KDE show at LinuxTag has begun already. With talks about KCall and 'KDE: 3, 2, 1!', users had a great chance to learn about existing and new features of KDE. The booth was crowded as always. We were visited by politicians, entrepreneurs interested in deploying the Kiosk framework on Internet terminals, and for tomorrow a guided tour for pupils is planned so they can learn about how to effectively use their new desktop in school - which is KDE.
Kurt Pfeifle did a great job at setting up a central infrastructure which includes print and NX servers which makes it easy to display KDE 3.4 and features of the upcoming 3.5 version in parallel. Questions about Qt 4, icon themes, and the cute big stuffed Konqi were answered by the booth helpers. As a special feature, a "live bug reporting" initiative has been announced, so people can report bugs live at the booth and by chance it will be fixed directly, if not they might be contacted by the developers who will show up later that week. Someone offered to print flyers for the project - anyone wants to create some flyers for KDE which include the latest and greatest features?
More exciting information will be posted here shortly. Stay tuned and
enjoy selected booth fotos
in the meanwhile. Or even better: pay the KDE team on LinuxTag a visit and get in touch with the creators of your favorite desktop environment!
