Submission + - Why Does KDE Use Slaves?

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"
