Re: [vox] Interest in KDE talk?



Bill, great idea for a talk. 

I also love Open Office and I would be interested in 
understanding more about what is shared and what is 
diverging between the overlapping apps in OO and KDE.

Also, since the Linux desktop project has decided to
abandon KDE because of the cost associated with QT,
would you be able to give an update on what Trolltech
and the KDE team are doing in reaction to this challenge?

Ed
