KDE "I think it's really necessary to respond to some criticism seen on the reactions to the latest OSnews article. I won't go into the article itself, imho it's rather negative, but hey. From an user's perspective, it makes sense to only review 3 or 4 parts of KDE 4 and complain about them, and ignore all the other brilliant pieces of work in there, right? On to the responses, I found this reaction by dagw to be the most typical. Well. That's painful. So, is he right? Did we make the wrong decision? Let's look at it from a broader perspective for a while. Let's see it in the Grand Scheme of Things to Come."

"renaming it to 'developer release' or something wouldn't have made much of a difference. Distro's would not have picked it up, or they would have - in the first case, the release would simply be another beta, and in the second case, ppl would complain anyway. "

If it is DR lease, few people are going to use/test it, that make the KDE 4.0 get to mature slower.
