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."

"""I suppose the root question, as an end user, would be what would the more advanced approach buy me,"""

As admin of about 50 Linux desktops, I've been asking myself the same thing while reading through this thread. The conclusion I have come to is "absolutely nothing". My users need to browse the Web, send and receive email, do word processing and spreadsheets, and run a curses based accounting package. The local users do this via regular old X protocols from thin clients. The remote users come in over NX.

I'm not saying that these technologies don't have their uses. But I don't see where they mean diddly to me and my business users. And I think that the kind of users I support are probably the more common case.
