    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.

Lavish spending can be disastrous. Don't buy any lavishes for a while.
