KDE

+ - Why Does KDE Use Slaves?

Submitted by
Jabari Zakiya
Jabari Zakiya writes "I wrote this blog on Freesoftware Magazine http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/ and the majority of the comments so far have been in support of the use of the terminology of "slaves" to describe KDE widgets. I say the use of the "slave" metaphor is totally inconsistent with the concept of "free software." Apparently, others don't. So, should KDE use "slaves." http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/node/2075"

The longer the title, the less important the job.
