Why everybody climbs on the roof and shout: KDE 4 is missing XYZ feature! It sucks! We should fork KDE 3.5!
First: Nobody is forced to use KDE. There is room for Gnome, XFCE, WindowMaker... They all have their audiences.
Second: Wanna fork KDE 3.5? As stated before (http://www.osnews.com/thread?321054), just do it!
People love to complain, but they only have cheap talk...
I really think that it's better to have a revolutionary DE that catches up on features gradually than stuck forever with the same old DE.
Do you really think that Gnome or XFCE will be alive in 20 years? Someday they'll have to take their chances too, or fade...
