trackback

KDE 4 on it’s ninith reincarnation will arrive at 1st August, making it the stablest, solidiest, snnapiest and quickiest of them all.  A  HUGE effort was put on polishness, more bugs were squished than I can count, and things got fast, I mean, Really Fast.
And now we need your help. “How?” you may inquire. And there’s not just one answer for that, so I’ll give you a bunch:

1 – By organizing a release party ( and rejoice)
2 – By going to a release party ( and rejoice )
3 – By convencing people to go to a release party ( and rejoice )
4 – By being a photographer in the middle of a release party and taking
pics for us ( and rejoice. )
5 – By dressing yourself like Konqui, walking around and hugging
people ( and rejoice )

ps.if you are a Photographer, you will also stop a bit and take a look at the amazing DigiKam.
But then, you may ask “How do I organize a Release Party?” not that complicated, there are some rules that should be followed, always.

1 – It’s a Party, so you should do Party things.
2 – It’s a Party, so you shouldn’t do unparty things.
3 – Invite your friends \o/
4 – Invite famous people \o/
5 – HAVE FUN!
6 – Register the party at our Wiki, so everyone knows what’s happening.😀

But then you may ask “How can I go to a release party?”
not that complicated, there are some rules that should be follwed, always.

1 – check our wiki, all parties should be there. if there’s none near where you live, create one and blog about it.
2 – Check the time, Check the place, Check your geek stuff, Go.
3 – Invite your friends \o/
4 – Invite famous people \o/
5 – HAVE FUN!
6 – Don’t forget to blog about how was the party. \o/
But then you may ask “How can I convence people to go to a release party?” not that complicated, there are some rules that should be followed, always.

1 – if they don’t like computers, Trick Them.
2 – If they work as teachers or professors, tell them how cool the
KDE-Edu guys are.
3 – if they like sports, run to the party, they sure will follow.
4 – if they like arts, Neil Gaiman’s poetry about tech.
5 – If they think they are too cool for a release party, invite cooler
people \o/
6 – if they are Photographers, tell them that a bianual event will
happen, and you need good pics. =D
But then you may ask “How can I be a photographer in the middle of a release party”? not that complicated, there are some rules that should be followed, always.
1 – You just happen to be there.
2 – You got invited to be there.
3 – You got tricked to be there
4 – You are there because you date someone there.
5 – You love Digikam and the kipi-plugins, and wanna rejoice \o/

But then you may ask “How can I dress myself like konqui and hug people”?
Don’t know, but I sure wanna some pictures if you made it. \o/

The “stablest, solidiest, snnapiest and quickiest” release was 3.5.10.
By the way, you should be using a spellchecker.

me no native english speaker, me worried about typos.🙂
And I’m using 3.5x in an old centos box at work, and no-no, not even close to what we have today =)
