“I guess I started it, this round at least. In this space last week I discussed what I saw (and see) as a disconnect between users of KDE and those who develop it. A few days later, Shawn Gordon offered a moderating view. Soon others weighed in. Many people grew angry. I’m sorry for that, but I think that if the use of Linux is to become more widespread, the questions demand answers: What, if anything, is the responsibility of developers to users? How does this affect the future of Linux as a desktop operating system?” Read the editorial at LinuxAndMain.Our Take: I have heard similar complaints from some KDE users over the past few months, that the KDE developers do not listen to users anymore for usability or other issues. I hope, if indeed there is such an issue, to be solved soon and bring the developers closer to the needs of the user.
