We're having a great meeting here in Munich, last night we collected a range of topics to chat about and today we've been moving post-it notes about as we discuss topics and fix problems. I'm enjoying it a lot.
It's little advertised but KDE has an office in Barcelona. With Scotland getting cold, dark and wet I set off in search of sun and colleagues to have a change of scene and improve my health after a surgeon poked needles into my eye.
Linuxcon ended in spectacular style with a party at the National Museum of Scotland, shown here with the interesting addition of a full marching band. Dolly the sheep was supposed to be on display but ran off at the sound of the bagpipes.
Linus is visiting Edinburgh today for a Q&A session at LinuxCon.
Asked where he'd like to see Linux in 5 years time he said he started Linux because he wanted to use it on his desktop but he's been disappointed how that hasn't taken off. He wishes desktop communities would stop arguing amongst competing technologies and would work together. How true. (And I continue to feel smug about being part of a community which hasn't started a new project to replace any desktop or desktop technology).
Linux has come to my home with Linuxcon in Edinburgh. Me and Kenny C are manning the KDE stall showing off KDE software running Krita on a desktop (bling), Plasma Active on a Nexus (swish, very popular), KDE Software on Windows (ooh I didn't know you did that) and giving away lots of lanyards. If you're here do come over and say hi.
