Linux After two years, the relatively popular PCLinuxOS distribution has finally put out a new major release, imaginatively called PCLinuxOS 2009.1. PCLinuxOS is a release originally based on Mandrake (now Mandriva), but which has taken on a life of its own. The distribution has one selling point (for some, at least) few other popular distributions have: it eschews KDE4 (for now).

I cannot stand KDE 4 series.
Linus didn't stand for KDE 4 series.
PCLinuxOS also cannot stand KDE 4.

How long until the whole world comes to common sense that these developers must have been on a orgy to decide to take this project where it went!

Fascinating

Linus didn't stand for KDE 4 series.


Good thing some of us can form our own opinions and don't need Linus to tell us what to think.

PCLinuxOS also cannot stand KDE 4


Good for them.

If that's what happened I wish more software developers went to orgy's since it produces such good results.

Honestly, the only orgies I've noticed in the KDE4 community over the last year or so have been ones of self-congratulations and denial. And yeah, there've been plenty of those.

This is what they said:

"We decided to use kde3-5-10 as our default desktop as we could not achieve a similar functionality from kde4."

It doesn't mean they can't stand KDE4, they just don't seem to feel that it's ready for them yet.
