KDE 4 revises the desktop

Really, really bummed out about KDE 4. Can it get better, be fixed? Sure it can. But so much of the basic things you use in a Desktop are wrong headed. I do wonder, what were they thinking? If you fix something wrong headed with more wrongly directed efforts it only gets worse. Looks like they are intending to match Windows Vista. Take a very good desktop, and modernize it so it is slow, sluggish, foolish and beautiful. Sorry, but while I like beauty, you shouldn't sacrifice the usefulness of software for it. My only hope is like Vista, uptake will be slow to non-existent among the various distros. Always like xfce, if KDE 4 becomes the standard, xfce here I come.
