Re: KDE Whiners

Frankly, I fail to see exactly what grounds the KDE group would have to sue
over?  Quite simply, it's advertising at a very precise market.  Is it
illegal?  I don't see how.  Is it clever?  Damn-straight it is.

There is nothing to stop them from doing them same thing so it's not an
"unfair advantage" as far as I can see -- they can do the exact same thing
right?  I think this is an enticing and interesting story.  Surely I'm not
the only one who would like an answer to these questions.  Anyone know a
news source covering this situation?
