KDE We all know what KDE stands for, right? Unless you're new here, you'll know that it stands for the K Desktop Environment. While this certainly covers a large chunk of what KDE stands for, it has increasingly lost its meaning over the past few years. Consequently, the KDE team has decided to 'reposition' the KDE brand.

What? That's not what compilation means. Look it up in the dictionary, it just means to gather things from different sources and organise them into a single body. There's nothing to imply "randomly thrown together" in that word.

Did you get hit bad by a GCC bug once or something? Or maybe you bought a lousy mix tape?

a lousy mix tape?

I know there is nothing wrong with the word itself, it's the way it's commonly applied. The crappy mix tape is exactly what came to mind.
