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."

"the big problem with Thom's article was that I think he started out with the conclusion and then went on to find evidence to support his conclusion."

If you ask me, he started with the goal in mind to write something very provocative.

Something that would make it onto slasdot; something that would stir up a lot of reactions; something that would drive the OSnews website hits up dramatically; something that would benefit their advertisement income figures.

He succeeded.

He didn't take into account that his personal credibility would suffer from such a hit piece. Or maybe he didn't care...
