KDE When KDE 4.0 was first released, it was met with quite some criticism. Even though people saw the huge potential, the lack of functionality and stability, as well as quite a few bugs detracted from the experience. The KDE developers continued to work on implementing their relatively radical vision, and with the release of KDE 4.2 creeping ever closer, it seems they're well on their way.

What annoys you is perhaps you feel a little bit over passionate over a myth. It's OK if KickOff is based on studies by PhD people (which is for me, one of the stupidiest and lame excuses that were ever written), but the fact that the PhD's done it, despise me more: How come these alien brainstorming heads didn't come up with something you can actually use? My feeling is that the whole thing was designed with Windows Vista in mind. Suddenly KDE taskbar goes black... hmmm... strange that I've *SEEN* another black taskbar quite earlier and it was not KDE4. See what I mean?

Perhaps my "own personal preference" would also explain why Patrick Volkerding still ships KDE3.x as the default desktop in Slackware!? Like you said, I would have been a mere mortal to also affect these other people's decisions?

I insist that there was nothing wrong with KDE3 and the whole KDE4 should have taken the path of evolution, and not this generalized mess KDE4 became to be. Gosh, it even emulates the Vista fiasco itself! Daunting coincidence!
