Does it still suck?!

Have they fixed that bug that's been around since KDE 3 that only I care about but is so crippling it renders the entire DE completely, utterly useless?

KDE 4.0 was the biggest mistake ever! It was such a buggy mess there's no possible way they got any further whatsoever in the last two years!

Is KDE still bloatware? I mean 3.5GB for a complete office suite, information manager suite file manager, large library of games, mathematical tools, internet suite, toys, sophisticated admin utilities, education utilities, media players, encoders, editors, viewers and a development platform is absolutely absurd! I mean, Windows 7 manages to pack in nearly a sixth of those things in only 12GB!


I'm going back to Windows, Linux clearly isn't ready for the desktop!!

why are you asking us? it is out, distros will start having it in their repositories and you will have the opportunity to check it out yourself.

the online world will be a lot better if people will try to tone down on unnecessary negativity
