    Thanks for the great overview of KDE 4. It sure looks like this is going to be one very nice release with a lot of nice background and foreground technologies. Sounds like it will rock the Linux desktop. Can’t wait to check it out when the final version comes out.

    It was great to hear all the projects that came up during Hack Week. Aaaaand all the cool ways they could be subverted for mayhem. I must admit, the thought of dashing through the halls of the Salt Palace in a custom map would make the Gaming Zone w-a-y more popular than it has been in the past (not that it hasn’t had a problem with that). Such a great idea, and clearly the programmers were quite mused by this.

    One technical problem with the pod-cast. It was clear that Will Stephenson’s mic didn’t have a puff-guard on it. Every p, c, k, q and so on was very… plosive.
