Stop Ragging on KDE4!

Filed under
KDE

One of the things that's been frustrating me a lot lately is all the negative press about KDE4. And the Gnome fanboys have been having a blast with it. I can't tell you how many times they've said that the change “destroyed KDE” and it “is the worst thing KDE ever did” and “KDE has more bugs than a roach motel” and other such derogatory statements.

I want to state explicitly here and now, STOP PICKING ON KDE4!! For the love of the penguin, end it now! We're not here to attack each other. We're here to work together. Sure, there might be a little playful banter between groups and maybe some healthy competition from time to time, but all this derogatory tearing down of other projects has got to stop.

First off, your rants about it's problems are pointless. KDE4 is a *complete rewrite from the ground up* of KDE. Read those words: Complete Rewrite! When was the last time you saw something completely redesigned come out perfect on the first try, or even the fifth or sixth?

Create modular server-side Java apps direct from mvn modules with diet4j instead of an app server

In the latest release, the diet4j module framework for Java has learned to run modular Java apps using the Apache jsvc daemon (best known from running Tomcat on many Linux distros). If org.example.mydaemon is your top Maven project, all you do is specify it as the root module for your jsvc invocation, and diet4j figures out the dependencies when jsvc starts. An example systemd.service file is available.
