Many thanks go out to LSE Linux and Security Experts GmbH for sponsoring accommodation, Fujitsu-Siemens for the complete hardware and SuSE Linux AG for the fair tickets and LinuxNewMedia for sponsoring the booth itself.

Many thanks go to credativ and Danka for sponsoring and manufacturing a nice set of KDE Live-CD's based on Knoppix featuring Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody) with KDE 3.1, KDevelop and KOffice and many many other applications available for the KDE Desktop as free software. They donated 1000 CDs to the KDE Project for promoting KDE as the leading desktop technology - stop by and get your copy at the KDE booth !

The CD is available for free (as in beer) but we would be greatful for a contribution to KDE e.V. to help fund the next KDE developer meeting later this year.
