Xompu (website in German - some basic information in English) is a new German company whose goal is to provide an easy-to-use complete computer, backed up by service support. Xompu released their computer a few weeks ago. And guess what? It runs Plasma Desktop and other KDE software.
Damien Tardy-Panis interviewed Robert Konopka, one of the founders of Xompu, to find out more about the company and why they chose KDE software. Read on to find out more about Xompu, what they think of KDE and our software, and news on job opportunities with the company.
Damien: Can you tell us more about this project? What's new in there?
Robert:Xompu is the first company that offers private customers in Germany a hassle-free computer experience with customer support via remote maintenance. The PC-package includes basic software and an administration service as well as customer support via telephone and email. This all-around package is new, and will help our clients to get rid of computer viruses, tech support nightmares, and onerous system maintenance. It is mostly based on open source software.
