KDE at German Events, October 2005

Filed under
KDE

October in Germany is filled with a lot of local Free Software events and KDE is present at them. Join us first at Berlinux 2005 on Fri October 21 and Sat 22. Then we are off to Dresden for Linux-Info-Tag Dresden 2005 on Sat October 29. Read on for how we'll be helping the users to explore the full range of wonders in KDE.

Berlinux takes place at Berlin's Technical University. Ellen Reitmayr, Oswald Buddenhagen, Stephan Binner and some others will run a booth and demonstrate the latest of KDE.

At Linux-Info-Tag Dresden, which takes place at Dresden's Technical University (see a pattern?), the KDE stand will be run by Carsten Niehaus and Tobias König with sporadic help from Josef Spillner, Konrad Rosenbaum and Friedrich Kossebau. Our stall will be next to Skolelinux and will emphasise KDE-Edu and KDE-PIM. An additional talk by Tobias König (in German) will give information about the current state and future plans of KDE.

Full Story with live links.

While the Firefox source code from the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0. https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/ Read more
