    Uh.. last I checked late October of 2013 (when the R9 first broke NDA) to mid-May 2014 is way shorter than one year. UNLESS YOU ARE FROM THE FUTURE!!

  11. How about we help Honton out

    Honton needs some therapy. Instead of inventing things to hate about KDE, he needs to contribute to KDE to fix all of its supposed problems.
