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.

That's not what we're discussing here. I'm not trying to say 4.0 was a quality release, because it wasn't. KDE4 didn't become remotely stable enough until 4.3, and I still won't use it as my primary environment (though I am going to give the new release another try; I am a sucker for new software).

What Thom has been saying is "If it's not finished, don't apply the magic, sacred .0 version number" -- which radically misses the point of a version number, ascribing to it some kind of significance that it does not and should not have.
