KDE When KDE 4.0 was first released, it was met with quite some criticism. Even though people saw the huge potential, the lack of functionality and stability, as well as quite a few bugs detracted from the experience. The KDE developers continued to work on implementing their relatively radical vision, and with the release of KDE 4.2 creeping ever closer, it seems they're well on their way.

About the "3 different search engines"

There are no "3 different search engines". It is just a way to say of how cluttered and stupid KDE4 menu has grown to be, I would much prefer the simple menu of KDE3.

I know Oxygen is not the only one theme/style, but stupidity chose it as default. Shouldn't be default. Also, I don't think the styles bundled with KDE4 are of any good... CDE? Redmond? Give me a break. I will stick with Ubuntu's "Human" that is much better, visually et all.

KDE used to be RedHat's default desktop. GNOME has been adopted by quite a few distros that used to have KDE as default. The only distro I know that dropped off GNOME was Slackware (with valid reasons I agree), but still they're shipping KDE 3.x series.

Developers need to understand that the user needs tools to get the thing done, not to stand in the users way.

For one thing I know, Windows 7 is coming to take over, while the linux major desktops are daydreaming with ideas to make userlife more complicated.

If you prefer a KDE 3.x style menu in KDE 4.x, then _use_ it. It's been available for you for ages now. All ready to be used instead of the default menu. Your complaint is way out of date.
