Almost at the same time BehindKDE, the site for interviews with KDE contributors, has started a new series of interviews with the 'Platforms' theme. In the first interview, Pau Garcia i Quiles talks with Patrick Spendrin, the current release manager of KDE on Windows and asks about the current status of the project, challenges and difficulties. In future interviews, Mac, Solaris, BSD (it's not dead, after all!), Haiku, OS/2 and more."

    Ehm... Read the article?

    Oh right, this is Slashdot. Sorry, never mind.

    FTFA, the only statement close to answering the question is:

    and we want to support free tools also on Windows (that's why we do KDE on Windows, right?)

    Doesn't really answer *why* KDE for Windows is a good thing -- one is left thinking "there are already lots of free beer/speech tools for Windows, why add one more?"

    Sure, you probably have an answer to that. My point is the article itself doesn't answer it, so "Read the article" is a boneheaded response.

    Your hard-earned time and money, right? Oh, no, it isn't. Let people do what they want with their time.
