FOSDEM 2006 - KOffice and a lost Kubuntu CD

Filed under
KDE

I just came back from FOSDEM. Of course we had a KDE DevRoom which was - IMO - well situated, in the main building and big enough, just opposite of the (from left to right) OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD and... MirBSD (wth is that last one?). Sunday was (at least our) big day. It was KOffice day. I started off with giving a rundown on our hell of a lot of interesting stuff in KOffice and what makes it so precious, oh yes, really precious. KOffice is THE future, and that's getting more and more obvious.

We're now using a hierarchical Composite/Component model, and it's working well.

Exploring natural media graphics with Krita

Filed under
KDE

Traditionally, graphics applications have been divided into raster image and vector image editors, based on the primitives that each category uses. By that logic, the open source world needs only one of each, or it gets accused of wasting "resources" through duplication. But there's another way to look at graphics applications -- by usage. The painting program Krita takes a different approach to working with pixels, which can lead to a very different raster imaging experience.
