Actually, no.. LinuxMCE uses very little of KDE, itself.
The core code, is roughly 4 million lines of our own C++ code, not counting the 12 or so projects that we incorporate upstream:http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/trunk/
It doesn't matter whether I "own" it or not, I am merely one of the contributors to the code base, these days, of which, the above linked codebase is one of three known forks to exist:
* Ours (LinuxMCE)
* Dianemo (Convergent Home Technology)
* Schneider-Electric, has a variant made for the KNX market, and purchased the commercial code outright from Pluto after its insolvency, but as of yet, has not made a shipping product with it.
Why are you being so hostile? You still haven't even answered my initial question.
