Yesterday Matthias Ettrich, the founder and inventor of KDE (as well as being my namesake) recieved German's highest civil general decoration – the German Federal Cross of Merit.

This medal was awarded to him in recognition of his work spurring innovation and spreading knowledge for the common good by contributing so greatly to FOSS.

Not only is this a big recognition for Etterich, but also symbolically for the whole FOSS movement.
