People use browsers, word processors, games, email client, im clients
etc. The first app that gets opened makes the desktop disappear. If the apps don't
work what good is the desktop other than to look pretty but dumb. I do not need my desktop
or apps to be a huge blonde moment (male or female take your pick). I need to get the
things done. If kde developers want to jerk around they're bored and get things half
finished and then say brand new here it is. This whole process has been one the least
professional processes I have been through in computing in a very long time. (Fedora / KDE
people notwithstanding in this tirade they as usual do a superb job) then ignore their
user base, well then there will be defection. Which by the way I am seriously considering
and trust me when I say this is painful for me since I have been a loyal and passionate
kde user for years as Rex can attest. But enough is enough. If I wanted to install super
karamba I would have installed super karamb
a. Now KDE has pushed it down my throat in the form of plasmoids the very least they
could do is have the thing work the way it should.
4.3 is a personal milestone for me. After a tirade like this one, to be fair I will wait
till 4.4 and leave without a whisper (I'm sure some are saying yea!!! :) ) . KDE
either works the way it should or I will have to go elsewhere.
Thanks for Listening :)
Re desktop apps
A significant number of KDE users don't seem to like Konqueror as is.
Very very few web designers seem to be testing again KHTML. So I
believe Konqueror + KHMTL is going to be harmful to KDE for quite some
