Unfortunately, while the way that they released KDE 4 ultimately resulted in a very solid DE, it also seems to have created a serious stigma for the project. I would love it if folks would just look at KDE 4 for what it is, but as with many things, it takes tons of good publicity to overcome even a small amount of bad publicity, and KDE 4.0 created more than just a small amount of bad publicity, regardless of whether it was actually good for the project from a technology standpoint to release it that they way that they did.

In any case, I think that KDE 4 has been quite solid and that it has been for a while (I've used it since 4.0), and I can't wait for my distro (Arch) to get 4.5 in the stable repository so that I can install.
