(Other stories by Liz Coolbaugh)
"Liz: Sorry to ask the same question that you've probably heard from so much of the press this week, but could you give me your reaction to the GNOME announcements this week?"
"Kurt: Actually, the question we've been asked most this week is "When will KDE 2.0 be available?" We have some great things coming out with the release of 2.0, particularly Konqueror, vastly improved management of file extensions and great performance. People are really excited about it. They love KDE 1.0 and KDE 2.0 is a tremendous improvement on that. The conference is going very well for us."
"We're not concerned with the GNOME Foundation announcements; it won't change any of our plans for the future."
"Liz: Do you see KDE ever creating something like the GNOME Foundation for KDE?"
"Kurt: No, if we did, we'd probably lose half of our developers. It is very important to us that the developers maintain total control of the plans and directions for KDE. We would not tolerate the creation of any kind of oversight committee."
