First talk in the CrossDesktop room on Sunday: KDE on Windows. I expected no more than 10 people to wake up early in the morning and attend a Windows talk, yet about 40 showed. Lots of problems with the projector 🙁
I gave the usual talk (slides) and showed KDE running on Windows 7 and Windows 2008. I had some problems while trying to show KDE applications running through Terminal Services and published with 2X but hey, it works (what you want to know: make sure you do not use graphicssystem raster!)
I insisted a lot on our need for more developers, especially packagers for third-party dependencies. Packaging a 3rd-party library for Windows using emerge is rather easy, it can be done by people with relatively few programming skills and, in any case, it is a good way to get started with development on Windows.
In the Q & A session there were the usual questions and Koen from Emweb made an interesting proposal. I think it deserves its own blog entry.
