Oh yes. I understand that there are dependencies on KDE tech. I know some
users do not like to intermix gtk and at software due to dependencies but I
haven't experienced any cross contamination issues intermixing them.

I think it would be cool to emphasize that it is powered by kde tech but
intended to be a finance manager for all.

Like ..

"......, Powered by KDE"

"......, From KDE Technologies"

As for the desktop piece. I don't know. I mean, it is true for now but will
we there  ever be a mobile version? Really on mobile all we need is a data
collector. I don't think anyone will want to have all their finances on a
phone. But I could see them using an app to log transactions to be imported
later (through kde connect hopefully) to the desktop.
(Different conversation)

"Your personal finance manager, powered by KDE"

"The personal finance manager, powered by KDE Technologies"

I just want people to know that although it was developed using KDE
Technologies, it works on other desktops too.

I agree that since KDE e.V. pays for the hosting server etc... We should
keep KDE in there..

I am sure there are much higher priorities than this, so I appreciate you
taking time to consider it. I just think it is such a good product that we
shouldn't keep it to ourselves. I had been using Linux for 5 or 6 years as
my main OS, I had heard of kde but had no need for it. When I ran KMyMoney,
I saw the KDE name there...researched what KDE was and wow! I couldn't
believe we had software and a desktop so we'll designed in the Linux world.
No wonder KMyMoney was so well designed and with tons of features.

My thoughts are that KMyMoney can be that gate way into KDE tech for many.
First we have to get them to install it and not shy away because it is
"...for KDE".
