LXer: Building the KDE UserBase

Published at LXer:

Most software developers, whether open source or proprietary, would agree that the success or failure of any endeavour depends on building a community. This may be a community of fellow developers, advocates or just users, but unless a significant number of people take a project to their hearts, it's unlikely to make an impact. If you're an elite coder who dreams in C++, making your mark on a free software project could be relatively easy; you take the code magically available under the GPL and work out how to do something new or more efficient with it and then bash out your edits on a keyboard. You release your patch and the community sings your praises while you begin the process over again with the same or another project.
