Beauty and Magic for KDE

Filed under
KDE

One of the most hotly anticipated presentations at this year's KDE World Summit, better known as "aKademy", was Zack Rusin's intriguing "Beauty and Magic for KDE developers." Zack is a long-time KDE developer who has recently been hired to work full time at Trolltech, the makers of the Qt library on which KDE is based. As the developer conference continued, more and more people heard of the amazing visual effects that Zack was going to demonstrate. The audience in a packed lecture hall were tantalized when technical problems meant the talk had to be postponed for two days, but finally the issues were ironed out, and Zack took us on a whirlwind tour of the state of graphics in Linux/UNIX, along with a demonstration of where we can go in the future.

Daniel Molkentin and I talked to Zack about his work and how it will improve the KDE experience.
