Re: KDE 4.1 sucks...not a desktop

"Then, maybe if you released something that more resembles a desktop and less resembles Vista under a blacklight, we'd start using it again. KDE version 4.0 should be codenamed Kista. What a disaster."

OK, that's enough stupidity. If anything should be named after XP or Vista it's the pug ugly, do it our way or don't do it at all POS called GNOME. Complete with borrowed (licensed???) MS code called Mono and soon, for you all who just can't wait, "Moonlight"! Did I mention dependent on Mono for a fair bit of it's functionality? Oh yes, and I ought to also mention a Microsoft inspired freaking Registry, of all things!

At times it's hard to remember that GNOME came about because it was felt that KDE and the QT toolkit weren't free enough. The GN in GNOME stood for GNU when it started out.

If you're happy with GNOME and it's baggage then I'm happy for you. You've made the right choice for you. Just don't come complaining when you find out you can't do something in GNOME you could take for granted in KDE and will still be able to do in KDE as 4 progresses.

I can see me in confession now. Forgive me Lord for I have sinned I said nasty things about a troll.



If you want to toss childish names around then expect some like the above to come winging back at you.
