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.

KDE3/4 and Windows Vista/7?

I don't understand why the change from KDE 3 to KDE 4 is being compared to the change from Windows Vista to Windows 7.
Much, much more drastic changes in the Windows line came between XP and Vista, and that's what the KDE 3->4 change looks like to me. Both Microsoft and KDE overhauled basic system frameworks and gave the interface a completely new look.
Windows 7 is just a minor version, it's not even a 7.0 (rather, it's 6.1 with Vista being 6.0)
