Matthias Ettrich Receives German Federal Cross of Merit
"Matthias started the KDE project on October 14, 1996 with his now infamous email. The project grew in leaps and bounds, creating one of the most active and innovative Free Software communities today, and helped redefine the expectations users have from free software in general. Indirectly, the KDE community influenced the development of the whole Free Software ecosystem, shifting the focus from Unix as a server system to Unix as a powerful end-user desktop, pushing the boundaries until today."
Parabéns à comunidade kde e um abraço especial ao meu planetário companheiro - Nuno Pinheiro.
