Re: [PLUG] Anybody Using Kde 4.2 Yet?


I am far than pleased...
Funny not that this makes the decision for me - but even Linus  
Torvalds who used to tell everyone GO KDE ... has changed the tune of  
the gospel he spreads...

In an interview given to Rodney Gedda of "Computer World" - Australia  
he said:

I used to be a KDE user. I thought KDE 4.0 was such a disaster I  
switched to GNOME. I hate the fact that my right button doesn't do  
what I want it to do. But the whole "break everything" model is  
painful for users and they can choose to use something else.

I realise the reason for the 4.0 release, but I think they did it  
badly. They did so may changes it was a half-baked release. It may  
turn out to be the right decision in the end and I will re-try KDE,  
but I suspect I'm not the only person they lost.
