KDE "After years of focusing on further improving KDE4 two weeks ago the developers of the free desktop announced the next big step for their project: KDE Frameworks 5.0. But as long-time developer - and Plasma team leader - Aaron Seigo points out in an interview with derStandard.at/web, the source-incompatible changes shall be held to a minimum. Also calls Frameworks 5.0 only the "first step", new Applications and Workspace releases are to follow later, Seigo goes on to talk about the chances in the mobile market with Plasma Active and further areas of collaboration with the other big free desktop: GNOME."

I believe Aaron Seigo "vision" is killing KDE. Plasma in the end, does nothing like was initially told it would


What won't it do?

as most users simply do not use activities, plasmoids or even that terrible netbook shell version.

Most users? where do you get that impression? Oh, I see, you mean YOU don't use. What kind of ego does one have to believe that he represents everyone?[

I hope KDE community, as a whole, things better what they want for KDE 5 before entering again in all those "we will rock" sites like plasma and solid did in pre 4.0 era and end up with something that do not have a clear path.

Well, they have a vision, and I would say a quite clear one. Do you have one?

Also, if plasma was meant to give a long life to KDE, why is that KDE 5 is being announce before a Qt5 (that would require API breaking)?

What are you smoking?

I don't know, I simply do not care anymoure about KDE development, I run it as my defaul DE, but I simply do not use any of its features, not even the menu (just a quick launch widget for my most importants apps, but KDE3 also did that, and was much more faster).

I don;t know, why would someone always say something as if he was an expert but actually sounded like he knows nothing?

Oh, by the way, I am not really a "community" member, but I do wish them good luck, because they are the real explorers. I am sure they would need some CONSTRUCTIVE critics, but not some empty whining.
