A lot of time and effort has been put into the project. Next year, I will
be working 20 of them on it and it is good to read that it pays off.

KMyMoney is built on KDE Framework technologies and they are required, even
if you run it under GNOME. If they are not present as required, KMyMoney
will not run at all or some function are not working (e.g. price download
if kioslaves are not installed).

Also, I want to emphasize that the infrastructure to develop and maintain
KMyMoney (git server, web server, download servers, etc.) is provided by KDE e.V.

I agree though, that since we are working on other DE as well, we could
rephrase "personal finance manager for KDE" to "personal finance manager for the desktop"
as we are currently not really supporting any other form factor. The consequence
would be though, that we need to test this very thoroughly then.

Other thoughts?
