Thank you!

| I just wanted to post a quick thank you to 
| everybody who congratulated me on the 
| German Medal of Merit, I truly appreciated 
| it.
| To get the facts straight: the Medal of 
| Merit is the lowest class of the Order of 
| Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany, 
| unofficially but commonly described as 
| Federal Cross of Merit. The medal does 
| indeed feature a big cross, so the familiar 
| name fits well. In order to get the next 
| class - the Cross of Merit - you will 
| typically have to be at least 40 years old, 
| so this is a good as it gets and it does 
| feel very satisfying indeed.


Windows 7 sure looks a lot like KDE 4...

| At work we have a new machine with Windows 
| 7 on it. While setting it up for a new 
| employee, it was my first chance to play 
| with Windows 7. My impression is that its 
| pretty much the same Windows as always, 
| with a shiney new graphical interface. If 
| you liked Windows before, its not all that 
| different. In some places (Control Panel), 
| options are gone for setting up new users 
| and the like; but in many other places just 
| below the surface, its all the same as 
| before, such as adding a new printer.


Flicking around

,----[ Quote ]
| For KDE 4.4, we're giving a bit of 
| touchscreen friendliness around Plasma, a 
| thing common on touchscreen based uis is 
| the so called flick lists and scroll views. 
| They can be web browsers, simle item views, 
| image explorers and so on.


Kopete â The KDE Messenger for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| If you are using KDE and not Gnome, Kopete 
| is the better choice than Pidgin.  It uses 
| less memory under the KDE desktop 
| environment.  If you want a native KDE app 
| that can handle multiple messenger 
| connections, this is a great program. My 
| only problem with this program is that it 
| currently donât support microphone and 
| audio/video conferences.
