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."

'Stable' does not mean the same as 'bug free'.

'Stable' generally refers to the stable nature of the API, and that bugs considered to be 'showstoppers' by the release team have been fixed.

It is doubtful that any complex application has ever, or will ever, be bug free.
