KDE Ars takes a look at KDE 4.0.2. "When KDE 4.0 was officially released in January, there were a lot of gaping holes in basic functionality. During the past few months, the codebase has matured considerably, and the environment is steadily approaching the point where it will be sufficiently robust for widespread day-to-day use. Although there are still many features missing, version 4.0.2 - which was released last week - offers an improved user experience. We tested KDE 4.0.2 with the recently released Kubuntu 8.04 alpha 6." In addition, there is a new 'visual changelog' for KDE 4.1.

It'll work out

So, Aaron Seigo is the Havoc Pennington of KDE, he even uses the same line of argument, fine. Mr. Pennington received a lot of anguish over his refusal to change this or that (somebody recall the "frame animation" issue?) in Metacity, but in the end, it worked out.

Granted, it took a long time, the first really usable Gnome 2, in my opinion, was 2.8 but who cares now? So I give the KDE fellows the benefit of the doubt and wait and see.

Edit: the guy is named Aaron.
