Hi guys,

Well, as far as I'm concerned, my contribution will remain very limited
My work on the bling applet was mostly to integrate the already existing
pictureflow code & add up icons & stuff to fit nicely into amarok.
In other words, I am not a developper, I haven't got that much free time
(which doesn't mean I'm not willing to contribute occasionally of
course) & I don't feel like starting all over again...
the CD racks concept is nice, sure
although I'm not that convinced that it wouldn't fall under Apple patent
Additional question :
I've read some positive comments on the bling applet so I still kind' a
think this will be such a waste to trash the whole thing...are we sure
we've studied the patent problem enough (and potential by pass, like I
already mentionned, optional (build time ?) applet or add on)
