The real problem was not that they released it, but that Linux distributions rushed to make it the default version, or in some cases the only version, in their packaging systems. From what I've read, many people in the KDE4 project were not happy about this. If most distributions had either followed the Debian approach of keeping KDE3 as the default, or the FreeBSD approach of leaving it up to the user there wouldn't have been such a problem. One of the worst aspect of OSS is the pervasive attitude that software is either bleeding-edge, or it's obsolete. BTW, I don't think it's really fair to suggest that KDE4 is trying to ape Vista, it looks to me as if the've both just borrowed a lot from OS-X, A lot of the other stuff in KDE4, has been under development for a long-time. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
