Agreed that Fedora could have shipped the deprecated KDE 3.5.x. But those KDE
users that *made an effort* to look and, and try, KDE 4.x *first*, and did not
like it, should have said - I stop here for now with Fedora 8 because I don't
like it or it is not 100%. I will wait.
No one *forced* you, or anyone else, to upgrade/install Fedora 9 with KDE 4.x.
No one held a gun to your head. No one said that they would eat your baby. The
choice was yours. And you took it.
If you think KDE 4.x is broken on your machine or in your mind then you win
the pieces. You broke your install by installing Fedora 9 with KDE 4.x. Which
was your choice. Not mine. Not Fedora's. Your's.
Many others are adjusting to KDE 4.x and some are even saying that they like
it. Anne is a very active KDE user and she tells me that things are improving
all of the time.
BTW. Next time you blame someone for giving you something for free give it a
double, or triple thought before you do. These people work very hard to *give
you, for free*, what you are complaining about here. If you had *paid* for it
I might accept your points. If you had made the effort to look before you
leaped I might accept your points. As for now? I do not.
This thread has become a whiners contest. Who can whine the longest or the
loudest. Or both.
