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?
