KDE 4 disappointment

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 192.101.64.254] on January 15, 2008 10:49 AM
I just tried KDE4 on my Kubuntu machine. Well, I'm disappointed to say the least. There's like one fifth of the features that KDE3 has. It's all lazy and buggy. I wouldn't say a thing if it was clearly marked as Alpha or Beta, but from the news (with all those "starts something amazing" catch phrases) it appeared to be be FINAL. If it wasn't for this, I wouldn't even bother to try it yet. IMHO this is Alpha at best, and it needs like another 6 months of development to have at least most features in place, and reasonable stability. THEN only should it be presented to users to collect their opinions and polish things. Current version is pretty much useless, wrongly labeled, demo
