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?

SAS, Canonical turn silly over open source

Zemlin's job, in other words, isn't to convince companies to adopt open source, but rather to provide a home for the nurturing of open source projects, so they're worthy of adoption. Similarly, Canonical can focus on contributing code rather than spooking enterprises into adopting more. And SAS? Well, it should probably start with 40 percent open source adoption and grow from there. Read more
