KDE KDE 4.0.0 has been released onto the world. "The KDE Community is thrilled to announce the immediate availability of KDE 4.0. This significant release marks both the end of the long and intensive development cycle leading up to KDE 4.0 and the beginning of the KDE 4 era." KDE 4.0 is the first release of "KDE 4", but take note that the developers have clearly stated that KDE 4.0 is not KDE 4, but more of a base release with all the underlying systems ready to go, but with still a lot of work to be done on the user-visible side. Download it from the KDE 4.0 info page. Update: Screenshots.

And I still think it's ass.

Not to downplay the effort, time, and people who worked on it. Bravo on delivering what you've set out to achieve.

Just don't expect me to use it.

"he final version is here, and, well, have a look at it. Linux people have complained about Vista's lack of refinement and testing. KDE4 is no better. When a development team starts ignoring its user base, it's time to wake up."

Everybody knows that 4.1 is the real release. The Devs have already says so. Comparing something the Devs say is unfinished, to something that MS says is finished, but has serious flaws, is just not right.

You're modded down, but you're not the only one disappointed. Check on open-source forums, in newsgroups, in mailing lists. Many many people have been disappointed by the poor decisions taken by the KDE team lately.

Note the Windows icon used for this user ;-).
