KDE will be at #fosdem again this year. We will have a booth in building K (of course) where you can try Plasma Mobile, meet the developers and grab some cute Konqi stickers.
Also don't miss Volker Kraus, who will be presenting KDE Itineray on Saturday:
and Akhil Gangadharan Kurungadathil, who will be presenting the new QML renderer in Kdenlive on Sunday:
At kde.org we now have a new page that lists computers that come with Plasma pre-installed. Find the best machine for you or stay up to date, as we will be adding more devices when they come out.
I will be attending @fosdem. Find me at the KDE booth to talk about KDE Connect, Plasma Mobile, KDE Apps on Android and all things around it.
KDE implements an opt-in (i.e. it is switched off by default; you, the user, have to activate it), anonimized feedback system for users who would like to contribute non-personal data to help improve Plasma, Discover and other KDE software packages.
As the screenshot shows, the system also lets you decide how much information you want to share.
