.. and an important part of the messaging (because it is a strength and a 
focus point of KDE, as Olivier points out) will continue to be the integration 
of these three.


"you can run KWrite on Windows and it works great there as a stand-alone 
application. but it absolutely shines when you use it with dolphin for file 
annotations or inside of kdevelop as a full IDE. for the full experience, you 
want to be running it in a full KDE desktop environment." 

obviously that's not a marketing slogan ;) but it's the message i think we 
should be putting out there.

it gets people to try the pieces that appeal to them most in the way they are 
most comfortable. as we build relationship with them through the products, we 
can slowly but surely increase the number of KDE software they use. :)
