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."

Well, to some extent, 1.0 releases tend to be pretty darn stable, mostly because many projects seem to go through 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4... 0.11 releases to get to that point, before deciding "Hey, I guess it's final!"

I guess KDE being so open and realistic about it is making things sound like KDE 4.0 isn't intended to be complete and reasonably bug-free, when I imagine it's more likely that KDE will be as bug-free as KDE.ev can make it, knowing deep down that it's not gonna be perfect the first time around, nor will all the side-applications be finished and perfect.
