+1.  Please keep the KDE/Gnome/etc. flaming off this list.

Think of it this way: would you so loudly criticize another system such as
Mac OS X, or would you simply state that such a system was designed with a
different user in mind, not for you, limited, etc.?  KDE and other desktop
offerings should be treated with at least some degree of respect--they are
not competitors, but rather have a different idea of how people should be
using their computers.  An idea that seems to be rather popular at the
moment I might add, no matter how much I personally disagree with it. ;-)

Also, please remember that there is technology in KDE that might be useful
to us in the future; not everything in the KDE project is incompatible
with the TDE project's goals.
