Desktop Summit Day One

Yesterday was fun and enlightening. We manned the booth from 9am to 4:30pm. Most of the day was us answering questions, and we received praise for what we(read KDE project) have been doing and how nice our desktop is. I don't think I heard one complaint about any area of the KDE desktop. I fielded questions about ODF in KOffice, Kexi(which I personally have never used), API documentation for ISV's, Mayan calendar support(as a request from a user) and other areas of Linux in general. I got to talk with Marcel Gagné of "Cooking with Linux" fame, Arne Flones from "The Linux Show" and not to mention the other booths at the show such as Mandriva, REALBasic and even Borders. There was even discussions about Women in Linux from a member of LinuxChix. Jes Hall may be getting a ping from them. ;)

Time for Day Two to start. I'll have pictures posted later for everyone to check out Matt and Wade's awesome booth presence.


  • Hmmm, that reminds me, I have a kde universal calendar app I wrote supporting at least a dozen different calendar systems that I've been meaning to add Mayan support to and release into the wild. you can see some really really old screenshots at http://www.kalends.org/
