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."

Following how KDE progresses, using it every day (not exclusively, just for the record), and havign expressed my opinion about pretty fake and false alarm raises about development being stalled, I can only agree with everything Aaron said. KDE hasn't ever been a slow follower when talking about features and implementing novelties, and hopefully this tendency will just go on. All I can add to this is that I use a very large set of applications and developer tools on a daily basis, but if I had to pick my favourite apps and my favourite desktops, it would all lead to kde. Yes, this is subjective, this is personal preference, yet it's not unfounded but a result of some years. And I'm not alone with this opinion and until this is the case, KDE will not stall and will not go away just because some internet journalists think everything is junk that doesn't come with strict deadline promises and dropping three dozen features just to meet deadlines and two jumbos full of shiny bells.
