KDE at FOSDEM 2006

Filed under
KDE

Last weekend, the Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting took place in Brussels. KDE was present there with a lot of developers, a devroom and several interesting talks. Among the speakers were Jonathan Riddell from the Kubuntu Distribution, Sebastian Kügler from the KDE's Marketing Working Group, Bart Coppens from the Krita development team and Raphael Langerhorst & Sander Koning from the KOffice teams.

FOSDEM's first day was a fruitful and busy time for the KDE developers. Not only did we give out 800 Kubuntu CDs, we also spoke with many enthusiastic users and developers who are interested in the development of KDE.

The day kicked off with a lengthy keynote from Richard Stallman about software patents.

The Kubuntu talk by Jonathan Riddell (Slides) filled the KDE devroom to the top.
