Hmm..  I do not use KDE. I'm a GNOME user. So this is really off target for me.

By all means do as you wish. Switch or bitch for KDE. But I have seen, on 
other Fedora lists, all of the efforts being made by the KDE team for 'your' KDE.

Helping works much, much better than bitching with community projects. Anyone 
can bitch. Those that truly care help.

Again it is your choice. As I said... I don't use KDE. But I have seen a lot 
of work by the KDE group. Helping them will do a lot more good than all of 
these 'me too' complaints.
