On my way to the KDE on Windows sprint

With all the work of putting Krita on Windows, it has become sort of imperative for me to join the KDE on Windows hackers. Besides, Osnabrück is only two hours by train from my home.

I’m currently trying to make a build of qt and kdelibs that doesn’t start any of the usual daemons: dbus, kded and so on. That seems to have succeeded, I now just need to fix some runtime errors!

This is also the first time in years that I’m travelling without any real Linux device. I’ve got a nice ultrabook prototype that’s running a build of Windows 8. I’m sort of disappointed in Windows 8. I was hoping it would be bad enough that we’d have another Vista-like opportunity, but it isn’t that bad!
