Are you kidding? You'd have thought Fedora was eating people's babies -
without salt - the way this list blew up when KDE4 came out in Fedora.

We're just seeing the same shit today. It'd be funny if it weren't so
pathetic.

This *is* the bleeding edge. Sometimes it's dangerously sharp, but it
always produces better and better code. Sometimes getting to the good
stuff takes wading through some bad, it's just the way of the world.

This whole series of threads is just freaking ludicrous. "Those who
cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" - George Santayana.

For those of us who've been around a while, this is like fingernails on
a chalkboard that we have to listen to it every couple of years.
