No, I wouldn't ascribe it to malice. If I hadn't looked into the causes of my problems with kde, I might have thought the same as well.

Its like anything having to do with technology: if you give up when you run into a problem, you'll just go back to what you're used to unless your forced, regardless of the cause of the problem. I'm old enough to remember the gripes tech folk had when they were forced to use Unix instead of VMS, windows instead of dos, windows instead of Macs,Macs instead of Windows,or Linux instead of Unix. Very rarely did those complaints have to do with the technical merits of the old system vs new. Its usually a matter of familiarity. If you try telling them the new system is better than the old for the use case, they often feel like you are telling them they were wrong for being comfortable.
