      you will sponsor a nice field trip for kde associates and family. They're cooking too!

        You might want to look up the latest Purism announcement. They didn't switch to kde.
        I may not be a programmer, but I do work with other people and I understand that costs real money. Actually you sound like you fear collaboration. That's understandable coming from you.

          Which...... Requires collaboration and that costs money.... So you're the one who -obviously- got it backwards.

            Some gesture based navigation (Sailfish like) would really be useful. Hint: get rid of those Android-esque home / grid buttons. Replace them with gesture / swipe controls.

              Purism is here to bring Freedom, not some cheap shot sailfish-like scams.
              Dude, Sailfish has some good UI ideas, no need to get your knickers in a twist. Your attitude on every GNOME or KDE article has been abysmal so far, change or go somewhere else with your opinion.

                Does not matter, what matters is that 300k materialized after they mentioned KDE, while before when it was GNOME only they had like 150k tops.

                This means more people's hearts are with KDE, and not with GNOME.

                  Or rather people know that there is a rich body of mobile ready qt apps from the Maemo, Meego, Ubuntu Touch etc. efforts that will run much better with KDE...

                    I see no point keeping good ideas out of discussion. Their interface ideas are good, no need to deny it. They are ahead of Plasma Mobile's approach. Plasma Mobile is open, which is the major benefit. So let them make UI better too.
