KDE KDE's Aaron Seigo (who owes me a Martini) wrote about a few often-heard misconceptions and questions regarding KDE 4.0, which is supposed to be released January 11th. "Now that 4.0.0 is tagged and out and that bit of worry and concern is behind me for the moment, I wanted to take a moment to talk really bluntly about 4.0. In particular, I'm going to address some of the common memes in fairly random order that I see about kde 3.5 and 4.0. I'm going to speak bluntly (though not rudely) so prepare yourself."

To be fair, we also have reasonably large-scale polls like this:


The problem is the poll lacks any form of statistical relevancy and by it's nature targeted a relatively specific segment of the global userbase.

That's kind of my point, though, that surveys like that are given more validity than merited, which fuels the perception that Gnome has somehow achieved an escape velocity to attract the mainstream market.

Heck, the mere fact the survey was Digg'd renders the results questionable, that's a ferociously Ubuntu-biased userbase... I'm frankly surprised that the polling server didn't bow out under a Digg-effect ;)
