KDE "KDE 4.0 is very exciting, though not yet production ready, and that shows with this weeks' release of the first beta. It's a beta release for a major software project (using the traditional definition of beta, and not Google's it's-production-ready-but-we-don't-want-to-support-it-officially-yet definition of beta) and thus, it comes complete with bugs, crashes, missing artwork, and other goodies one would expect such as new code, new technologies and fun toys. For those of you who are unaware, KDE is one of the largest open source projects ever conceived. A major milestone release such as 4.0 is a long time in the making. Here follows a number of things to look forward to for those of you brave enough to try this early beta."

I don't get the point in complaining about KDE in this news item, if you don't like KDE don't use it. Nobody is forcing you to use KDE. I happen to like KDE and GNOME, and I'm happy to see both of these projects doing good, and adding features. Choice is a very good thing, at least you can choose to run GNOME if you don't like KDE and vice versa.
