KDE The KDE team has released KDE 4.3. This release comes packed with improvements and bug fixes - in fact, over the last six months, 10000 bugs were squashed, 2000 feature requests handled, and 63000 changes were checked in by 700 people. We've already talked about this new release in quite some detail last week, but let's take a look at the most important new features anyway.

KDE 4.3 is released now. Windows 7 isn't.

Well... considering what's been passing for "releases" in the KDE world the last couple of years, I'm not sure that distinction is very meaningful. Windows 7 prereleases have been around for a while now. And while I'm certainly no fan of Microsoft, I do at least give them credit for having higher QA standards for release than KDE4 has seen. Even for Vista.

What has that got to do with which is emulating which?

How can anyone conclude that the one which was started design earlier, and is released earlier, is an emulation of the Jhonny-yet-to-get-here?

"higher QA standards"? Windows? Surely you jest. All that I need to say to debunk that notion is "UAC, privelege escalation and MS internal applets". There are many other things that I could choose to say about that, but that one will suffice to illustrate the point.
