KDE.org: The People Behind KDE: Tink Bastian

“What is your role within KDE?”

“Other than supporting my husband, making the interview pages,
non whatsoever. ;-)”

“How and when did you get involved in KDE?”

“I was involved from the moment Waldo started to code for KDE.
Not that I physically did anything but, I listen to his complains,
plans and frustration for hours. Offered my view on I/O slaves, on
GUI, on fonts etc. I’m a Mac person myself so I have a different
view on things than most of the KDE developers. A couple of months
ago Waldo and Cristian asked me If I would do an interview series
of people behind KDE and I agreed.”

“How much time do you spend on KDE?”

“That’s hard to say. KDE integrated in our life for a great
deal. Sometimes I get frustrated by it because it takes up too much
of our personal life and other times we talk and have heated
discussions about it till 2:00 in the night. On the interview pages
I spend an hour a week. Most time consuming is trying to get the
developers to return their questions. ;-)”
