I have to say you're incorrect. After careful analysis of data from my very reliable and honorable ass I have arrived at the conclusion that an average KDE user weighs 95kg and given the amount of such users -- around 2 billion -- we arrive at a number comparable to square root of his mother's waistline in kilograms.

Obviously this was meant to be a polite way of asking: Is anybody actually using it? And if so, for what?

Not a totally unwarranted question to somebody who has tried to do just that.

Yes, yes, I know I bring food, but if you're going to try to be a troll, at least be subtle about it.

Man, trolls were much more skilled back in the days.

Most people that use the KDE desktop environment use it as a desktop environment... Not trying to sound sarcastic, but "[used] for what?" is kind of a rhetorical question in my opinion, assuming you understand what KDE is.

Many people use KDE. Most popular Linux distributions support both Gnome and KDE.

I use KDE on my laptop and fluxbox on my desktop (a much older machine). I have liked KDE for a long time and although the 4.x branch was initially a rough transition, it has gotten much better with time. I look forward to trying out the latest release.
