Editorial With Windows 7 having made its grand debut, and with KDE4's vision making leaps and bounds forward with every release, we have two major software projects that have decided to implement some fairly drastic interface changes. Such changes are bound to receive some harsh criticisms - but the funny thing is, these criticisms usually come from people you least expect it from.

This is a good enough place to rant as any...

KDE4.x sucks rocks! What the hell were the developers thinking? "Lets create a completely usless UI with lots of candy and make it hard for users to get work done? well they succeeded! I love change and find it extremely intellectually fun to try new stuff! but KDE4 has no purpose! I used KDE3 for years and loved it! It was solid, logical and fun to work with! I tried 4.1 (I skipped 4.0 due to the bad press) and the interface is completely f*&ked up! Navigating/configuring is a pain! KDE4 got what it deserved! It tried to be window vista and it was treated as such!

I've discovered xfce4 and am again happy with my UI experience! Good riddance KDE4!

That's one of the great things about the Mac UI! Apple changes it in small relative steps and is VERY intuitive! Excellant work there!

Windows 7 sucks as well! Sure it's faster but faster to not being able to find what you want! POS!
