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.

"Maybe from the developer point of view it was a success. But for the point of view of a humble user, it was a complete disaster.

Stop writing such bullsh*t. The only distro which went for KDE 4.0 exclusively was Fedora. All other distros either stayed with KDE 3.5 (eg. Debian and PCLinuxOS) or made a KDE 4 version optionally available (eg. Kubuntu, openSUSE).
Don't pretend as users were not warned of KDE 4.0's immaturity: http://en.opensuse.org/Image:OS11.0-inst-6.jpg

He never even mentioned distributions and he didn't pretend users were not warned of KDE 4.0's immaturity, so don't attack somebody (e.g. "stop writing such bullsh*t") when you haven't properly read his posting.

So "humble users" compile KDE from source instead of acquiring it from a distributor?

He wrote that for "humble users" KDE 4.0 was a "disaster", even though most normal users did never even see KDE 4.0, because except Fedora (and in that case only the KDE spin) no distro adopted KDE 4.0 as its default desktop.

I thought Mandriva adopted it. These releases come out and say there normal but they're RC or chock full of Beta software.
