KDE On Friday, KDE officially launched its version of Dell's IdeaStorm - KDE Brainstorm. In less than 24 hours, over 100 new ideas were proposed. "Getting the non-developer and developer communities really communicating is often a challenge, and KDE's approach is a great start. Developers now have an opportunity to hear what end-users want."

RE: How about making it work?

(I had been a happy KDE 3.5 user.)

So why didn't you keep using KDE 3.5? You could have kept using your KDE 3.5 distribution. Or if you wanted a newer distribution, Debian, Slackware, and OpenSUSE continue to offer KDE 3.5. I understand switching distributions is a pain, but no more painful than switching back to a different platform entirely.

It's not as though the KDE 3.5 code is taken away from you. You can still use it. (Contrast this with the vendors of other, proprietary operating systems, who deem the old versions obsolete and refuse to keep selling them.)
