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."

So how good exactly were Windows XP, OS X, etc. when they were first released?

You are confusing a few things. Windows XP is just the brand name of Windows NT 5.1. In turn WinXP was not the first release of a new era, but built on proven WinNT foundation.
Mac OS X is a better comparison. Mac OS X 10.0 was a new product. Mac OS X 10.0 sucked, 10.2 was quite good and 10.3 rocked.

He's also confusing the fact that both XP and OS X are not just Desktop Environments. They are the entire package from kernel to the DE.
