But it's incomplete since we now have KDE as well, while the old text

Joey, we all would prefer a free and open-source solution. But there is
none. I for one prefer a solution that was done with non-free software
over no solution all the time.

Let's do it with LaTeX and just print less flyers of the non-free
version, but you probably won't get the LaTeX one ready for LT, do you?
