Re: KDE Whiners

I don't know about you good people, but I take the notion of a lawsuit very
seriously.  I don't think "because they made me mad" is a good enough excuse
to sue anyone.  Under what grounds would the KDE group sue?  That question
still remains to be answered.

It seems to me that too many organizations are suing each other over the
most ridiculous things too often.  Sometimes, there is merit.  Does anyone
have a take on what merit would have been in a KDE vs. Ximian lawsuit?
