KDE KDE 4.0.0 has been released on January 11th, after a number of delays; the months preceding the release, the KDE developers tried very hard to downplay expectations. KDE 4.0.0 was just the first release in the KDE 4 series, and such, should not be seen as the best possible representation of the KDE 4.0.0 vision. So, when I installed KDE 4.0.0 on my Ubuntu Gutsy installation last Friday, I knew what to expect: KDE 4 Developer Release 1 (yes, I am a BeOS guy - how did you know?). Read on for a few quick first impressions.

I stopped reading after encountering the following errors in the first few paragraphs:

"or by not making the disappear completely in one pulse"

"fabled new composting features"

Composting features - sounds smelly!

Intentional farce?

Continued reading didn't get any better...this was poor even by web standards. I am sure that Thom had something to say, I just couldn't focus through the lack of editing. This would be a fine first draft....

Which brings me to my point. It is pretty comical as it is basically a rant criticizing the lack of attention to detail in KDE...

Is it intentional farce?

Ah yes, a few typos slip through, and suddenly, the article is invalid. Great way to divert attention from the real issues at hand.

May I remind you that English is not my first language.

Man, what a crock. If you can't get over a few typos, and just read the damn article, don't bother posting. Thom isn't a native english speaker, and sometimes mistakes happen. I've seen typos in books, magazines, the web, you name it, nobody is perfect, except maybe you.
