Reversed logic?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on August 15, 2003 10:50 PM
From the article

"Siemens has no "religious" attachment to a particular distro or desktop environment. Before settling on Ximian, Siemens evaluated plain vanilla Gnome and KDE as well. Siemens found KDE to be more "Windows-like" than Gnome, but that lead to problems when non-technical users expected a more Windows-like experience. Gnome, particularly Ximian's version, was "different enough" to set user expectations that the experience would be less like Windows, which led to fewer adoption problems."

So how can KDE lead to "adoption" problems if it is more "windows-like" for those who EXPECTED a more Windows-like experince?!!

Common FUD and anti-KDE sentiments are not _so_ rare in newsforge after all

*sigh*
