| been told today that the date may be bumped - I’ve been assured though that 
| we will definitely be good to go so Santa can put an bright and new KDE 4.0

| 2.20.0, which will be released later this month. 



KDE 4.0: revolution or hype?

,----[ Quote ]
| "4.0 will probably not be the revolution, and we won't take over the world in 
| one day," he said. "We will, however, increase the profile and the market 
| share of the free desktop significantly over the KDE4 cycle. An important 
| point one needs to remember is that KDE 4.0 is only the beginning. It'll be 
| the first desktop to be exposed to the user, and it's the base for our work 
| for the next, say, five years."     


On GNOME's 10th anniversary, de Icaza and Waugh look back, ahead

,----[ Quote ]
| Though de Icaza is no longer directly involved with GNOME development, he 
| says his work on Mono, and that of the rest of his team at Novell, "pretty  
| much revolves around the goals from 10 years ago." He says he keeps in touch 
| with GNOME developers, but "mostly with those who are using the APIs and 
| tools that we are creating, like the Banshee Media Music Player, the F-Spot 
| manager, and the Bater collaboration tool."
