Happy B-Day KDE!

Filed under: Uncategorized — jamboarder @ 12:12 pm

I started using KDE around 3.0 and it has been a blast to see this wonderful little collection energy beat so many expectations over and over and over again.  Now that I’m not just a user but a developer of apps that build on the foundation KDE provides, it is wonderful to see just how far down the stack the warmness of KDE, the community, extends.  Every now and then I have to remind myself that this amazing infrastructure is all developed then _voluntarily shared_ by people, despite the many pressures that exist in the world that tell you _not_ to this.  This is something genuinely amazing to experience as a user and an app developer.

Remembering what it was like being 15 years old, I wonder how similarly impatient, clumsy, creative and anxiety-ridden KDE will be over the next few years.  Perhaps KDE will weather those years much more gracefully than I did. :-)
