KDE KDE SC 4.0 was released in January of 2008 and KDE SC 4.5 will be released shortly (August 4th, 2010), roughly two and a half years later, and it is time to reflect on what KDE SC4 seeks to accomplish and how well it is doing in its goals. The critical shift KDE SC took in this series is abstracting the desktop from the underlying system through three pillars, phonon, plasma and solid making the desktop some sort of a virtual platform environment and easily portable to other operating systems.

I think KDE developers made a mistake by rewriting a code from scratch.
It's easier writing a new code than fixing the old messed up one, but it's not the way how software developement should work.
FOSS community is forgiving, that's why KDE has survived.
