this week has been just insanely busy for me. i've been playing with kdecore, dealing with various devel issues around plasma land, participating in the release schedule discussion and the p-man was out of school for the last day and half. i have to finish up 3 presentations for my trip next week ... it's just one of those weeks where i feel a bit run ragged. and so not much blogging =) i wanted to show the neat new animation stuff in krunner, but the screencast one of the guys made for it didn't actually show it.. so.. yeah =P
some really good news, though, was found in mauricio's blog entry on kde computers sold in brazil. 18% of systems shipped with free software desktops there, making 1.5 million systems. the supported distros are all kde centric, so it's safe to assume they were installed with kde when they left the store.
if we use last year's numbers for retention (1 in 5 keep linux on the system, with the other 4 simply installing an illegal copy of microsoft's products) we end up with a number of 300,000 systems in the last year. that's five times what last year's data indicated. nice =) i can't wait to see things first hand next month at FISL.
now to make more countries like brazil ;)
