QNXExtreme, I think the problem you’re coming across here, is that there is no obvious reason to have KDE on QNX
Just like there was no obvious reason for KDE on Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, etc., right?
I mean, if I wanted to use KDE (I’ll concede that I don’t) I’d just run it on one of the Operating Systems that it’s already available for.
I don’t want KDE on some other OS, I want it on the one I’m doing work with. That OS just so happens to be QNX. I do real work.
I just don’t see why making one OS (QNX) similar to another 10 misc. OS (Solaris, GNU/Linux, AIX, HP-UX, I could go on) will suddenly make it more popular.
You might want to ask why those operating systems, at least the first two, are more popular than QNX. You might then want to ask yourself how KDE factors into that. That might not give you a comprehensive answer, but it’ll certainly give you a good start. I ain’t here to do your thinking for ya, bud.
When I first started to use QNX, what made it attractive was that it was a pleasant, lightweight UNIX-alike without the nasty cruft
of UNIX, and with a very attractive snappy GUI which again did away with the cruft of X11.
Okay, you’ll still have all that. If you don’t wanna use KDE, then don’t run it. Porting KDE to QNX isn’t going to force you to use it. Am I missing something here?
I think your enthusiasm is to be commended though.
Thanks, bro. Respect.
