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.

Yes I know. And most people who use computers use them as computers. How funny!

The question is, what are they doing on them? Surf the web and check mail or anything more heavy duty?
