KDE Probably the most often misunderstood element of KDE4 is Plasma, the extensive widget engine that replaces the normal desktop and the Kicker panel from KDE 3.x. The entire KDE4 desktop is built up out of Plasmoids (yet another term for desk accessory), including the panel and the desktop itself - and it is the latter that has been causing quite some confusion. Where are my desktop icons? Update: Aaron Seigo has published a screencast showing how the FolderView Plasmoid behaves as a normal desktop, and how to make it so.

-I don't like this because I can't do this that etc.
why isn't it like so etc.

-why is it different? why is it done it this way?

-this does not work [explanation of bug or description of problem]

-I don't like this because its dumb/wahhh I want kde3 again

-Kde4 dev's are arrogant because they didn't change feature x when I said it sucked.

-kde4 is ugly/kde3 was so much better

-it doesn't work...kde4 sucks

These are just examples of the attitude (though some of those are almost word for word copies). A lot of criticism has just been noise with no point to it and completely unhelpful.

the most uninformed critics tend to be the loudest whiners

some willfully refuse to be corrected of any errors/misunderstanding or go somewhere else to spread their misinformation.

trolls to be expected under a popular and public project but it seems that some have gone out of their way to as vicious as possible.
