What Money Can't Buy!

posted under by Pinheiro | Edit This
I started playing around KDE so many years ago I can't even remember.
Well I can't wen but I do remember the how. How I felt, wen using something that made a revolution inside my head.
And the revolution was not because it was a great piece of software, or because of the wonderful graphics, but couse of the instant feeling I had that this software was made by people, not a corporation but real people! The fundamental Idea that common people one crumb at the time can and make a difference, is something that I never forgot.
Over the yeras I got to know and admire some of those people, the timed passed and I started to help what little crumbs I could to this wonderful cake KDE is.
But today I got the Icing on my KDE cake, the mail brought me the KDE Akademy award along with something that that made my day (scratch that) made my year, a Document signed by many of those people I admire for so many years.

you really really deserve it mister!

when i started to look over the kde4 development, there were only a few people i noticed, and your name was very quick on top of the list. and it's not because someone told me so, it's because you (among others) really have the power, the fascination and the inspiration to keep a project like kde ahead.
what people see, and what people think about kde4 is a big part of what you have created and might have had in your mind a long time before we could be in the position to consume all this glory... and i have to say, it realy is a big masterpiece. keep on rocking the free world, mister!

Nuno, i liked so much what you said about kde in this post that i'm quoting your first 8 lines in the last slide of my presentation at the italian LinuxDay. I's so good to see how much love someone can feel for our KDE!
