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."

""The last straw was when I put in a CD or USB drive and the session would bomb. How can Linux be 15 years old and still not handle this?""

What does KDE flaking out have to do with Linux? It was not Linux that Bombed out it was KDE.

Correct. I should have said KDE not Linux. Does it change my point? Is KDE flaking out is acceptable behavior after 13 years of development?

KDE 4.0 didn't have 13 years of development.

GNOME 2.0 was equally buggy as KDE 4.0 was ... so would you argue that GNOME developemnt should have kept on with the GNOME 1.x and GTK+ series?

If you would argue so, then we wouldn't have GNOME 2.26 and GTK+ 2 now.

If you would argue otherwise ... then why the inconsistency of your arguement applied to KDE versus applied to GNOME?

After a couple of releases, GNOME 2.4 and later were quite useable.

Same with KDE 4.2 and later. What exactly is your problem?

Is it acceptable behavior to blame KDE for the bad packaging that some Distros have done?

I think not. The main problem with the KDE 4.x series was it getting pushed too fast, with too little testing to users.
