" I'm too used to the old way. We went from a "zoomable" interface to "activities", which are understood well by asiego, but not so much by a large percentage of the userbase.


Exactly. That is what I say to myself: KDE 3.5 was a desktop for users, KDE 4 is a desktop for geeks.
You have managed to explain very well what I was trying to say. However that doesn't explain why I was modded down twice.
