This year's CeBIT appearance of the KDE Project will be hosted by SuSE on their main booth in hall 3, booth E045. SuSE staff as well as members of the KDE Core Team will be demonstrating KDE 1.1.2 including the new SuSE Desktop. The highlight will be a preview of the upcoming KDE 2.0 release including KOffice, the KDE Office Suite.
"We are very glad that we found with SuSE a partner that is able to host the KDE appearance at CeBIT. We hope a lot of people like the new, exiting features of KDE 2.0 and KOffice." said KDE Developer Chris Schlaeger.
"KDE 2.0 and KOffice are very exiting technologies that will be the key to Linux's success in the desktop market." said Roland Dyroff, CEO of SuSE Linux AG
In addition to the demo points regular presentations will be held on a large video screen to serve a broader audience.
