And we have new maintainers for KDE Brasil website

Hello everyone, from some time br.kde.org, the Brazilian KDE page was maintained in a slow pace, due the heavy duty that me, Maurício, Felipe ( the previous mantainer ) and other translations guys in role are into ( like real life ). Was basically pt_BR carbon copies of main website, nothing more.
As Felipe asked for a temp departure, we are in need of new fresh blood insane people to join the hard task and bring new life to the home.
So i'm proud to announce that Tomaz and Sandro, from the Live Blue project accepted take the task.

Mandriva releases qt-creator with new cmake buildsystem..

Yes, sounds strange. Why should i did it ?
Well, first is known among the distros that qt-creator in first release is not the most friendly to packaging.
Not only beacuse qmake, but because some distros rely on things like splitted packages or 32/64 bits coexistent libs and plugins.
Second, was quite a challenge for me do this, because i need to learn some new tricks ( thanks dfaure for automoc4 help ).

And we did it again - Mandriva 2008.1 Spring is out...

Well, was a huge journey for usr this time. 2008.1 was not only an updated 2008.0, but since early design, was clearly that we would try do a big step on our development. Just to mention what arrived since 2008.0, we're integrated Manbo labs work, which means now we're have a real common core system between us and Turbo Linux, we're integrated PulseAudio on whole distro, which was a bold move and even not been so perfect yet, for me proves at all that was the right decision, and of course, we did most of possible fixes and insanities on KDE 3 !!

And more about play the "revolución" game...

Troy was a little too much polite for me. Really.
Is easy to understand when we saw critics. Most easy when are from the people that can't or couldn't help the subject but want express their own feeling about this.
But NOT when came from the people that CAN HELP and MAKE PART OF THE SUBJECT.

ABN Amro Real Bank want to shutdown linux clients in Brazil... Is already a Santander move ?

First of all, i'm working in a Linux company, i use Linux for almost everything in my life except gaming.
Second, my company sold like hundred thousand of linux machines all over the world.
Third, it's obvious for any smart person that actually read regular information about computer world see that linux is growing A LOT.
Then, suddenly, the bank that i use ( and many of my fellows co-workers ) decide the very smart move to include an security applet that simply makes mandatory the use of Microsoft Windows. And they tell this explicitely.
