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.

I think most people aren't complaining about bugs with KDE4 anymore, it's mostly about features and apps.

I use it fulltime and there are still some desktop things that aren't fully there yet. I guess this really shouldn't be too surprising because it was KDE 3.3 or 3.4 that really started to have the polish for that major release.


What things aren't there?

Remember that you can run KDE4 applications, KDE3 applications, QT applications (such as VLC and SMPlayer), GTK+ applications (such as OpenOffice, Firefox and Thunderbird), LSB-compliant desktop applets and in addition plasmoids, Mac OSX widgets and Google desktop widgets out of the box in an integrated manner.
