 Except that, to use your analogy, we're not running ads for vegetarian food.

 If for some unknown reason I've missed that KDE's biggest selling point and 
the purpose of existence nowadays is to deliver shiny widgets, then please 
ignore me, I'll go in the corner and complain how everything was so much
