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."

RE[2]: KDE is nice

Member since:

I think the problem here is not KDE or Gnome, but the distributions who set them up. Ubuntu and Fedora Core do it properly (for example, in Gnome you click on Applications -> Internet -> Firefox, for KDE you click the K -> Internet -> Firefox) but in distributions like Mandriva, you have K -> Internet -> Web Browsers -> Firefox, or in Gnome, Applications -> Internet -> Web Browsers -> Firefox. There is an extra level, and sometimes two for applications. There is no need for this unless of course the distribution packs 5 different kinds of each application. There is a word for this... starts with a b, ends with an t and sounds like 'boat'.
