Windows Adrian Kingsley-Hughes pens a rant on Windows 8, calling it 'awful': "I'm now ready to sum up my Windows 8 experience with a single word: awful. I could have chosen a number of other words - terrible, horrible, painful and execrable all spring to mind - but it doesn't matter, the sentiment is the same." I've been using Windows 8 Release Preview on both my ZenBook and my regular desktop since its release, and here's my short review: "I like it." Issues a-plenty, but for what is essentially a 1.0 release - not bad. It's a hell of a lot better than other releases which were similar in scope (Mac OS X 10.0, KDE 4.0).

? If you didn't notice, KDE is quite mature and stable now.

I have trouble believing that somethig that most of the time runs on top of X.org and PulseAudio is either mature or stable. And before you call me a troll, why X.org and PulseAudio still have issues like tearing and volume control accordingly? Plus, KDE has a tendencyto crashing a lot since forever, not just with 4.0

Or you were refering running KDE over Windows? Can this still be done, and do "Linux" apps work with it?

KDE 4 does not require PulseAudio, Phonon can use any audio backend. Currently I'm using GStreamer and it works fine.

X still sucks but what can you do? KDE apps will work on Wayland when it's released, so maybe things will be a lot better then.
