KDE On Friday, KDE officially launched its version of Dell's IdeaStorm - KDE Brainstorm. In less than 24 hours, over 100 new ideas were proposed. "Getting the non-developer and developer communities really communicating is often a challenge, and KDE's approach is a great start. Developers now have an opportunity to hear what end-users want."

KDE4.x.x series...

I think it is a wise decision to let KDE-devel community to shrink and remain little within a group of german users/developers. Software is to satisfy users needs. If they feel they're doing this for them, it's good that they are best left alone. Of course, not all of the devs think like that. But it is a shame how big KDE was, and how much the 4 series has been rejected for its poor egocentric usability.

Hehe, weird thing is, the KDE development is growing like never before, while Gnome has almost come to a standstill in that regard years ago.

I'm not even going to discuss the reasons for the 4.0 and 4.1 releases, if you read OSnews you've seen why we did that, but considering the amount of work the devs put into the most requested features esp for the 4.2 release, I'd say it's simply dishonest to say they don't listen.
