It would be good, if KDE applications would work also on android. But I would 
miss the plasma (ative) basis.

Yes, i hope, that KDE remains FREE software and not only opensource with 
whatever licence.

I am not afraid. I did leave windows behind some 15 years ago, because I want 
to determine what I have running on my PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet, and 
am angry, that I could do on my smartphone and tablet anymore.  That is what 
is driving me. Other aspects, which are rather new, are Free digital services 
(that is why I left facebook and joined diaspora), FREE hardware and FAIRE 
hard ware (that is why I ordered a Fairphone of the second batch).

Thank you for your answer.
