How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter

"This is an addition to the series that was never at first envisaged. Indeed, within a recent thread (shown immediately below) and in my response to "hkwint", I stated very clearly that I had absolutely no intention of writing further on KDE4, but this situation almost developed with a life of its own and I now think it needs to be brought out into the open for the LXer readers.

"http://lxer.com/module/forums/t/31457/ As I noted elsewhere on LXer, I moved from KDE3.5 to KDE4 much later than many others (5 months or so ago), so all my problems/frustrations and successes have only just emerged, whereas most other players met them three years ago when KDE4 was first released and under much more difficult and demanding circumstances. Nevertheless, I began to ask serious questions about the structure, funding and objectives of the KDE development team, and again, I place the blame wholly on the shoulders of "hkwint" (with some laughter but also with a great deal of gratitude) in that he suggested on that same thread above that I should contact two people within KDE and see if some answers were forthcoming. This seemed an excellent idea to me, given that I now had two names of people involved in promoting KDE software; moreover, if you want the truth as to how people within KDE itself view those questions, that is where you must go."
