KDE This is a response to the article yesterday on the progress of GNOME and KDE. Aaron Seigo, a lead KDE developer, sets out the current state of progress with KDE 4, pointing out that KDE 4 is on track for a release in mid 2007. "Thom points to a quote from me that our goal is to have a 4.0 ready sometime in the first half of next year. That gives us until sometime in June and I'm still thinking we can make it."

Looking forward to KDE4

just because KDE and Gnome don't hype their point releases in the way that MS and apple hype up the smallest improvements they make, doesn't mean that there hasn't been much progress.

@HK47

It would help KDE a lot.

"If you don't show the world your toys, the world won't know the cool stuff you've got to offer them."

Heck, people would discover that KDE has it's own office suite (KOffice) instead of defaulting to OpenOffice everytime.

Well, to be fair, its probably for the better that people see OpenOffice.org instead.

For all of the progress that it has made (and there has been a lot), KOffice really doesn't measure up to OO.Org at this point.

Hopefully 2.0 will improve on that considerably.
