Gnome As most of you will know, the GNOME team is hard at work on GNOME 3.0, the first major overhaul of the platform since 2002. The release of GNOME 3.0 was originally planned for March 2010, but it has now been pushed back for six months to September 2010.

Strange, how hardcore KDE fans keep trying to rewrite the disastrous release history of KDE4. KDE 4.0 to 4.2 was frought with end-user problems. KDE4.3 was where things started to gel.

The problem has never been the technology of KDE4. It has been the PR management. It was handled poorly. No problem, people make mistakes. What is a problem though is the occasional "It never happened" attitude from some KDE4 fans.

We were all there when it happened, remember?

Strange how even after two years, hardcore GNOME fans keep trolling about KDE 4.0.
Even stranger: They keep mentioning how Linus hated 4.0 -- Linus, the guy who keeps adding experimental features (ext4, btrfs,...) to release kernels, citing FOSS' "release early, release often" mantra.

KDE 4.0 to 4.2 was frought with end-user problems.


KDE 4.2 was a great release. It was praised by reviewers across the board.
4.1 wasn't the most awesome release in the history, but it was OK. Plasma still had some missing features, but Plasma is only a small part of KDE. The biggest part of KDE are its apps.
Novell certainly though that KDE 4.1 was good enough for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 (thus Novell needs to commit to KDE 4.1 for 7 years).

What is a problem though is the occasional "It never happened" attitude from some KDE4 fans.

KDE 4.0 happened. GNOME 2.0 happened. Linux 2.0.0 happened. Linux 2.2.0 happened. Pulse Audio happened.
Etc. pp.
