I seriously don't see how I could trample on the feeling of a woman who willingly has accepted on posing for a photo. - Sep 30 2006
How can you say Chicknux doesn't exist? Basically, now it does. Stay tuned for an official announcement :)

I really wished you were right and my initial post were off-topic. I'd be glad I could ignore religious fanatics. Unfortunaley, these fanatics seem to have a voice loud enough to get this sites administrator to remove artwork if they feel "offended". And then, I refuse to ignore this. Beware of the beginnings, who knows what will be "offensive" tomorrow. Not that off-topic, ain't I?

BTW.: I think that "new kde mascot" artwork actually had a relation to KDE, as it featured the current mascot.

So pictures "suitable" for inclusion in distributions are ok? Don't you think this is in a way hypocrisy? Hypothetically, would you be ok with those pictures if someone made a distro called "Chicknux", based on the Linux kernel, KDE and lots of erotic/nude imagery? The kind of pictures you and some other folks detest would be perfectly suitable for "Chicknux", don't you think? Would it *then* be ok to post them here?

I'd bet even then you and others would rage a war on artistic photography.

I am sorry I offended your belief system by falsely putting you in the christian corner. It's kind of a generalization: Most people standing up on such content prominently have flown the banners of their cults, and all to often those were the banners of fundamental christianity.

Let democratic principles decide: Use the moderation system for sorting out inappropriate non-criminal imagery. Anything other is bigotry. - Sep 29 2006
My English has seen better days... In Germany, "Sodomie" means zoophilia, and has nothing to do with homosexual content. I didn't mean to offend gay people. - Sep 28 2006
No - There should be boundaries, defined by the law governing the area the site owner operates from. This law usually has reasons for denying particular imagery (sodonomy, kiddie porn, etc...). I'd also believe that KDE-Look should not alow hard porn (eg. closeup of genitals doing what genitals usually do).

Besides of that, I believe there should be either a strict guideline what to remove (e.g. depiction of women in suggestive poses, as there are literaly hundreds on KDE-Look), or no restrictions at all.

KDE-Look surely has greater problems than appeasing religious nutheads. Just think of all the work based on propritary photos that is released under the GPL :| - Sep 28 2006

Actually, yes. But don't most users work with but one window most of the time? - Sep 27 2006
I didn't try this, but the disadvantage to this approach were that it would apply to every window - ideally, there'd be a button in the title bar to selectively activate or deactivate this feature. - Sep 25 2006
As this should be a relatively small task in 2D, and this feature is useful even to people running on low-end graphics hardware (who needs 3D accleration for vi or latex?), I think XGL/Compiz are a little overkill. ;) - Sep 25 2006

try http://free.prohosting.com/ - Sep 10 2006
Again, I'd try prohosting.com ... they worked quite ok in the good ol' days, and they still seem to exist. - Sep 10 2006
If you'd read that muttering, it might have come to your attention that I was in fact not writing about you, but barking at megaupload.

Matter of fact, I do have a server. Basically, next to everyone has one. They are a douzend a dime nowadays. Webspace for free usually is part of your providers' service. You could even try one of the fine freehosters like prohosting. - Sep 10 2006
Thanks for nothing, megaupload! After keeping me watching Adsense and an maladjusted DIV Layer for ~50 seconds, you tell me some bullshit about an "internal error".

You, Megaupload, need to die, and so should all pages that equally rip off users time.

In totally unrelated news: Those icons seem cool on the screenshot. - Sep 10 2006

Why doesn't KDE join forces with Gnomes developer?
http://www.gnome.org

That's the app, and it seems very promising. I don't think there is reason to do many competing programs, when you can join and make one good.

;) Yes, that actually *is* the same logic. Stupid as it may seem. - May 14 2006

... I like it. Face it: The XP menu *is* or can be more usable than kmenu ... this is the way to go. BTW: What will I have to install to get this, when development is finished? I´d really like to see this happening in Source, not in some cheesy (semi-finished) kicker-replacement ... - Nov 11 2005

I was sceptical when I first read that article, but abakus really is an major leap to usability, and I am experiencing this to be up to 60% faster than the traditional kcalc.

Get it into the official KDE, but make it optional. - Oct 05 2004

No offense, maybe it is thought to look uglyish, bit seldom I have seen something comparably ugly.

However, your other wallpapers are quite nice. - Jan 12 2004
