"But by year's end, it will likely be the default desktop for many if not most Linux distributions, and is certain to become a standard (if not the standard). So if you want to amaze your friends, learn a great deal without a lot of effort, and become the resident KDE2 guru, now is the time to start."

"Roll up your sleeves and dive right in! You can hack KDE2 without knowing a bit of code, because it's all there in plain text. Look in the /share/apps dirtectory. Open some files. try some things. Reconfigure stuff all over the place if you want. If you break some stuff and can't back out, just install again. (Or, if you're the careful sort, you can backup the working file before you "improve" it.)"

"Fact is, this doesn't apply just to KDE2. You can mess around with just about anything Linux and make significant customizations without having to write code or even compile it (though if you're going to use Linux, you're going to need sooner or later to compile an application or two or a dozen, so you might as well learn now)."
