Not only that. We would also want to contribute to the increase of Linux's 
market share among end users.

But sure, what you say too.

Yes, not developed in detail yet, but we would want to market KDE frameworks 
such as Kirigami to independent developers or development groups, as well as 
to companies that see the usefulness in creating crossplatform applications, 
thus attracting their developers into our orbit.

We will also be enticing existing FLOSS projects that already work on several 
platforms to become KDE projects, to mention two ways we would contemplate to 
do that.

But, as I say, details to be worked out over the course of the process of 
achieving the goals.
