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."

[QUOTE]I do think the tone of the original article was indeed inflammatory, but I suspect that Thom belongs to the polemicist school of rhetoric. :-) [\QUOTE]
He's just dutch... Still nice he linked this article, thumbs up there.

I also believe that there is a fundamental misunderstanding about the direction KDE4 has taken, i.e. it is mostly not a cosmetic redesign, but rather largely "under the hood"...
This is exactly what's been going on, but plasma and the new kwin got hyped for flashy desktops, while we have compiz, and while plasma is just the last thing to be done, since it's build on the stuff under the hood.
