KDE "As the dust settles from aKademy 2005, the annual KDE conference, it's a good time to take a look at what the KDE developers are working on. Though KDE 3.5 isn't even out yet, developers are already working on KDE 4. Plenty of work has already gone into porting existing code to Qt4, the GUI toolkit upon which KDE is based, and KDE developers are working on projects that could radically change how [KDE] works."

See for instance this interview - half of it is about bashing the other DE, instead of focusing on their own stuff.

While the fact that you're trying to start a flame-war in a thread devoted to comment a KDE piece of news should be just fine, eh?

I'm very glad that "you won't see that from KDE developers" (to which I subscribe 100%), because some KDE users still don't seem to like a constructive free software environment. I'll stop at that.

Ok, you have a point - and I'm sorry if I offended someone...

I'm just tired of this ... I mean, there are certain topics where you can't say certain things without starting a flamewar (whether it is your intention or not). I think that one of the main characteristics of a troll or a flamebait post is that it makes broad generalizing statements without giving any specific details. I don't think I fall into that category, but I'll shut up (maybe I should have shut up in the first place) if this is such a touchy topic.

As to being offtopic - well, to a certain extent I am. We are talking about the future of one desktop: KDE. Mentioning another one, just to see the different trends, directions, etc that various *nix desktop takes is not a problem (should not be a problem) imho. And that is what I did. I think we can talk about a lot of things in conjunction with this article. Even GNOME, or the future of DE technologies in general. Or Enlightenment - which is quite different from KDE, but they have already shipped exciting new technologies, and at the very least you can't say that they are not visionaries. One cannot help but be excited about the future possibilities of e17. I can't say the same thing about GNOME - I find nothing exciting about its future, I don't see its own developers excited about its future - which is the biggest problem I think.

Anyway, I'll stop here before I cause any more trouble.
