One person on their own can’t do everything:

  • artwork
  • sound affects
  • i18n and i10n
  • menus
  • config
  • documentation
  • tutorials, information, etc
  • support for users: email, bug reports, IRC, aKademy, blogs, news sheets.

Talk about common desktop, bringing Gnome and KDE together.

The “coder decides” rule (a free-for-all … ?)

KDE 4:

  • Dolphin - file manager.
  • Phonon - sound system.
  • Solid - hardware management.
  • Nepomuk/Strigi - meta data, uses RDF triples, for data files.
  • Plasma Desktop and Workspace. http://aseigo.blogspot.com/. Design you own desktop.
  • All games must use SVG graphics.
  • KDE 4 libraries very different from KDE 3, large parts of applications may need rewriting.

Programs:

  • kgoldrunner package. Clone of Lode Runner.
  • kmymoney2
  • digiKam
  • Gwenview
  • palapeli
  • kigo - front end to gnugo - chess.
