Gnome As most of you will know, the GNOME team is hard at work on GNOME 3.0, the first major overhaul of the platform since 2002. The release of GNOME 3.0 was originally planned for March 2010, but it has now been pushed back for six months to September 2010.

But it was a distro disaster, not a KDE disaster. I mean the message was plain and clear and intended for distribution vendors, not end users (most end users get KDE through a distro vendor).

It was the failure of distributions to apply common sense, starting with the early integration of KDE 4.0 in Kubuntu... Sadly, other distributions followed suit... Oh wait, that's not even the case... Major vendors offered both a stable KDE 3.5.x and the new KDE 4.x release, with more or less clear descriptions in the release notes about the potential issues with the new release. But quite a few users just couldn't wait, went ahead (despite warnings from both KDE and their distro vendors), then started to whine about the lack of feature parity with old kde, even though they were warned through multiple channels BEFORE they tried it out...
