KDE

This article explores where the KDE community currently stands and where it is going. Frameworks, Plasma, KDE e.V., Qt5, KDE Free Qt Foundation, QtAddons - you heard some of these terms and want to know what all the fuss is about? A set of articles on the Dot aims to bring some clarity in the changes and constants of the KDE community in 2014 and further. This is the first article, diving into the technical side of things: Plasma, applications and libraries.

An update on where KDE stands today.

Me too. Same story. Happy user of KDE3, now happy user of OS X.

Similar here. Devout KDE 3 user obsessed with software freedom... now on LXDE because Trinity hasn't been updated to match modern desktop standards and even the "it's better and less sluggish now" releases of KDE 4 are full of papercuts.

(And Konqueror 4.x is apparently bit-rotting in the parts not used for web-browsing while Konqueror 3.x, in its role as a generic, tabbed, splittable, network-transparent KPart harness, was central to my use of KDE 3.)

Not me. Although I've found KDE perfectly usable, there's always been something about a KDE desktop, going back to KDE 2, that doesn't quite fit whatever it is I want in a desktop. Be that as it may, bring on the progress!
