Fedora Core "KDE 4 is seen by many to be the next big step on the free software desktop, while others think releasing 4.0 in its current condition was misleading and a mistake. Either way, it's an innovative release and inline with Fedora's goal of providing the latest and greatest free software it is set to be the default KDE environment in the next major release of Fedora. We caught up with two members of the KDE SIG to talk about the work they're doing to get it ready for release, their own opinions on the software and what they think about the progress made by Fedora in getting over its GNOME centric reputation."

Is anyone forcing you to use KDE4? Perhaps, someone's got a gun to your head, threatening to wipe your family off if you won't switch to KDE4? What kind of baby-sacrificing, Satan-worshipping distro are you using?

I don't understand how you came to such conclusions.
Please reread my posts in this thread.
Which part of "If a distro is released with KDE4 *only*, I'll refuse to use it, for the time being." you don't understand?
It is clearly about a free choice.

luckily, afaik no distro will ship with 4.0.0 by default, let alone as only choice. Some might ship 4.0.2 as default, but offer 3.5.x as option as well. Imho that shows guts, but it's doable. I'd rather go for 3.5.9 as default and 4.0.2 as option...
