Wish list: 10 improvements for KDE 4.2

In reply to the message below, I say.
The KDE4 developers need not to release KDE as stable say 4.0 or 4.1 and 4.2 but still unusable. You should label the software beta if it is beta quality. Stable if it is usable for a long period without restarting X so often. You lied to the public in the first place, and users will expect a stable desktop, but what you've got is an alpha released(labeled as BETA) and beta(that you said a stable). Free and be patient, CORRECT logic, but people will buy things if the work will be done for them. NOBODY will wait for their relatives to give him a free t-shirt so that he can troll outside, NO he should buy that thing so that he can enjoy trolling ASAP w/o ...._waiting_... so patiently anyone from his relatives to give him a shirt he needs. So we keep looking back. And do not expect Windows users to not look back. Anyway KDE 4.1 is closer to stable for now . The KDE team should at least released 4.1 as 4.0 beta1, beta2, beta3 etc. then 4.2 as 4.0 stable/ready for production use.

Nevertheless, I applaud the KDE developers for their work. But do not expect me not to look back.
I am an end-user, the only thing I can contribute is to whine but with good reasoning as possible.

sheesh.. these morons that compare a X.5 release with a Y.1 and expect them to be at the same level of stability, functionality, features etc do not have a clue. They should rip their own arms off and hit themselves on the head with the wet ends until they get a clue.
The KDE developers have a finite number of hands and time. More than half the features whinged about in these forums I've never heard of or used or used more than once. I think some people have more time on their hands than they know what to do with especially those that whinge about theming etc.
If you want something that is freely given be patient, constructive instead of destructive or get your hands dirty. Stop sniping from the side lines as it makes you look more like a troll."
