The most irritating is that there are certain kde developers and users who want to convince world that kde 4.0 was a great release. And that are we making things up, just because we are haters. Well, we aren't.

No one thinks that 4.0 was a great release for users, or that it was very usable or should have been used by people.

The argument is that 4.0 was never supposed to be any of those things, so by looking at what it was supposed to do (kick start 4.x development, allow for all the cool stuff that is happening now) it was a success.

I don't think this is a very hard concept to grasp, but some people seem to have this overwhelming need to hear the developers prostrate themselves and beg forgiveness.
