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."

I think it all goes back to 4.0 being a testing release. It didn't make sense during the early, bug-fixing period of KDE4 to start thinking already about new features. The fact that they're now asking for feature requests suggests that the desktop environment is now "ready".

The website provides a forum where users and devs can get together to debate new features. This strikes me as being a more productive way of approaching the problem than the scattering of mailing list posts and bug reports.

I think you should give it a chance to fail rather than declaring it DOA.
