I think this is really not the way we should discuss things. Accusing Albert 
of insulting anybody is not necessary, accusing him of doing it out of 
ignorance is clearly against our code of conduct. There are very good reasons 
to respect the CoC much better, especially when it comes to discussions around 
Plasma, we *need* to do better here. This discussion will not lead anywhere if 
we start out with negative assumption about anyone's intentions.

As to the topic, I think both have their use-cases, and their not mutually 
exclusive either. It seems to me like it's easy enough to find a distribution 
model that satisfies both, the "tools as separate windows" faction, and the 
"tools as part of the workspace faction".
