KDE This is the 3rd installment in my series on deficiencies in common desktop environments. After GNOME and the Mac/MacOS, it is now KDE's turn. As with the other installments, this is a rant. Beware.

RE: The "K" names suck

What about all those "G" named Gnome applications? Or how about all those "X" named X applications? Don't forget, its not Linux, but its GNU/Linux.

KDE (and then GNOME) was simply going on the X tradition of naming applications with an 'X' so you could instantly tell that is was not a console application.
