What always surprises me about fosdem is that there are genuinely quite a few 
people who attend fosdem and yet haven't hear of KDE (or Krita). There were 
people genuinely did not expect that this software would be free; people who 
thought our stuff is open-core and that we'd ask for money for the really 
useful features.
