I completely agree with this, but it is a shame some KDE fan boy has modded you down ..

He was modded down for being incorrect. The KDE devs do spend a lot of time fixing bugs, but KDE is a big project and so will have a lot of bugs. That's just the way it is. Also, old bugs aren't going to be fixed because they apply to KDE 3.5 and that is no longer being developed or supported (despite some distros still using it).

Here is what Bugzilla shows for the last 7 days: https://bugs.kde.org/weekly-bug-summary.cgi

Notice how half of the projects/components have actually closed more bugs than were open at the start of the week?

And for the last 31:
https://bugs.kde.org/weekly-bug-summary.cgi?tops=20&days=31

It's a little bit worse, but not by much. Plasma, while having a net increase of 68 bugs, still closed well over 600 bugs in one month. That's a pretty big deal.

So to say that they aren't fixing bugs is just nonsense.

I didn't say no bugs were getting fixed. But, for example keyboard shortcuts don't work properly since 4.0.0. They were scheduled to be fixed in 4.1, then 4.2, 4.3 etc. and they still don't work as of now. At the same time many new plasma stuff is added while the bugs pile up. So maybe it's time to stabilise at one point in time first.
