[kde-community] Differences between proposed vision drafts (or "inclusive" vs "focused")

Focused does not mean exclusive. Every technology (and not only
technology) that gets us to the point where all users use KDE shells
and apps (because of their superiority) is welcome. IMHO, of course.

Another point is that not everything needs to be built in house. When
I started free software development, it was harder for independent
small projects to survive. It was much better for them to join the big
groups, like GNU, GNOME, KDE, etc. Now this is not the case. So I'd
expect some of the technologies that KDE can use to be actually
developed elsewhere.
