Well, first of all in spite of people saying "noone" or "everyone" without providing an argument. It's my pet peeve. I think we're professional enough to keep some assertiveness in our communication.

Secondly, I personally find it interesting that the project which sparked KDE (it's name was intended as a wordplay on the CDE) is still maintained, at least at it's glacial pace. Together with still existing development of WindowMaker it gives some perspective on window managers in general, and their progress.

Call me old fashioned, but I find that fascinating. Also, I still use WM on my older laptop.

I find those phrases to be incredibly useful for quickly distinguishing technology enthusiasts who know what they're talking about, from the bro-tastic-hipster wannabes. Whenever I encounter an online comment that includes the term "noone," my brain automatically search-replaces it with the words "this post was written by a semi-literate moron, everything in it can (and probably should) be disregarded."
