Ah, I see. Developing new applications for KDE, submitting it to KDE SVN
and contributing to KDE upstream development in general is a measure of
killing KDE. Makes sense.

I wonder where you know that from.

If you really take something about "signs", then try to control your
phantasy and read the [opensuse-commit] mailing list.

During the last days, a new setuid binary has been added to the
distribution. I know it because I'm reading the [opensuse-commit]
mailing list. Do you know what that means? And do you know why it has
been done even though it is per se a really bad thing?

Simple answer: In order to give you a KDE updater applet. But you don't
seem to be interested in it at all, you're just spreading rumours.

Try to learn the difference between a distributor and an innovator.

Canonical, the "#1 for KDE", did not feel the need to create an
acceptable KDE frontend for the NetworkManager daemon. Novell did, and
Novell paid the bill because it has been created by a paid employee.

Canonical compiles and distributes it. But no, you prefer spreading
questionable rumours instead of looking at the actual work being done.
Because of an icon theme. It's _so_ unfair!

But if you really think that it's a good idea, support a pure
distributor, you will probably not even notice where the innovations
actually come from...
