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.

Don't pretend that "warning" did a damn thing to deflect the negativity of end users, especially with development on the KDE3 branch effectively dead as soon as 4.0 hit. 4.x is just now starting to hit the level of maturity that should've been delivered in 4.1 and we're still missing major features.

Next time, try harder to come up with a convincing lie. KDE 3.5.10 was released one month after KDE 4.1.0: http://kde.org/announcements/announce-3.5.10.php
KDE 3.5 still receives bugfixes. The last one is just eight days old: http://websvn.kde.org/branches/KDE/3.5/
The KDE 3.5-based "Enterprise" branch of KMail and the other PIM apps is still in very active development with the last bugfix less than one day old: http://websvn.kde.org/branches/kdepim/enterprise/

Maintenance mode life support hardly constitutes active development. It may be less buggy, but it's still stuck in 2007
