[kde-promo] Interviewed about Konqueror (in France)

Just to let you know that I have just been interviewed by a journalist
from SVM (Science et Vie Micro), a French non-linux-specific IT magazine,
about Konqueror (as a web browser "competing against IE"). We talked
about a great number of things, including CSS, LiveConnect, Safari, XUL,
caret-mode, and D-BUS :)

The article will be in the issue that will be out around the end of September.

Great. Maybe I'll understand what 'caret-mode' means. SVM is, I guess, the IT 
magazine with the largest circulation in France.

There have been lately quite a lot of articles in the general French IT press 
on Linux, generally quite positive. I guess the absence of news coming from 
Microsoft oblige them to find alternative subjects.  The sad thing is that 
generally there is no mention of KDE (even if their screenshots show it in 
action). In their frame of mind, there is big void between Linux (meaning 
Gnu/Linux + the standard window manager on their distribution) and Mandrake. 

Cheers,
Charles

In-place editing in KHTML. For now it mainly means having a cursor (a text cursor
is called "caret" to prevent confusion with the mouse cursor) and being able to
add/remove plain text where there already is some. In the long run I guess leo
will wrap it into a KParts to have rich-text buttons, or simply use this in kafka.

to be based on open standards.

The agenda offers business and technical tracks, as well as related forums covering a

	Hi,

Paris Linux Solutions 2004 is calling for conferences. I don't think it is 
restricted to french speking people. So anybody is probably invited to 
propose a conference.

I think something on KOffice, PyKde, KDevelop, KDE Accessiblity or the 
classic "kio_slave/kpart/dcop/valgrind/kachegrinds rocks" from David would 
be welcome.

I unfortunately don't have much time to do more that giving you the 
information.

	regards,

	Philippe

That's my neck of the woods (well, my state anyway).  Just called Jill, who 
said she's having some discussion with Ralf Nolden.  I'll drop him an email.

Regards,

Mark

Red Hat vs KDE, again


>From http://dot.kde.org/1062916070/1062978049/1063027101/:

Tried latest redhat beta (severn) yesterday, and few remarks:
 - No single KDE application or library gets installed by default
 - All KDE applications are hidden behind 'more applications' tabs
 - *ONE* KDE application started properly from menus after install (konsole)
 - Some KDE applications do start from the command line, such as
   konqueror, but do not work a single bit. In konqueror, 'configure
   konqueror' menu never appears no matter what you do

How broken can you actually get it?! I tested it roughly for 10
minutes before giving up with it.
---------------------------

Anyone else tried the new Red Hat beta?  So now all KDE applications
are hidden?

-N.

   Well I should note that it is a beta afterall.  Maybe it's a good idea to 
speak to our Redhat packager about this.  In any case, given that RedHat has 
basically given up on the "desktop market", does it really matter?

Can we?  Who is it?  Can we also ask them to install KDE libs by
default?

> basically given up on the "desktop market", does it really matter?

Red Hat is basically the strongest, most resilient and well-known
Linux (and consequently: KDE) distributor in the US, perhaps even in
the world -- so yes it matters IMHO.  People/Corporations using or
investigating KDE through Red Hat will get a very bizarre impression
of KDE indeed.

Who said they gave up on the "desktop market" anyway?  Besides, there
are a lot of Red Hat derivatives, internal or otherwise, that may be
targeted at the desktop and they will be influenced by the base.

It would probably matter less if Red Hat had decent KDE competition in
North America...

Cheers,
Navin.
