Also, statements in this thread like "the abortion known as KDE4" doesn't sound to me like it was made with good intentions.

One thing I would like to point out is that the TDE project wouldn't exist without the KDE project.  Can't we give the KDE project at least a little credit as having created KDE 3 so that TDE could be forked? 

Thanks,

from my point of view it is to be expected that people have strong opinions about such matters, including that this or that "sucks", nothing childish about it depending on their reasons.

however I think we should make sure that in the expression of opinions we don't attack individuals whose opinions differ. I'm not sure that's been done yet but maybe approaching the margins.

I find the discussion interesting and informative. as far as I can see, the intentions certainly are good and if there are good questions and good answers, who's the loser?

 An example of a feature added to TDE that was not in KDE 3.5.10 is the
compositor. Has it broken all TDE and maked the users all upside down like
what your are doing right now? Of course, not at all. It was just a nice
addition to TDE and some persons have worked hard to implement it, so whe
should all thank those who want to improve TDE in any way.


"Nice addition" is your opinion. How is compositing not bling or bloat?
It's incorporation in early KDE4 releases was a big reason I didn't even
like to sample them.
