there's more than just VFS stuff to work on; and many of these things have
only one or two people working on them, especially in the early days of each
of those efforts. i applaud your efforts, let's just not make blanket
statements about all areas of effort. because it just isn't true.

time, mostly. some of us do, though.

maybe i'm the odd one here, but i was/am aware of it =) i do read the blogs
and some of the mail that happens outside of kde.

i agree we can do even better. at the same time, we are *miles* ahead of where
we were a few years ago. perfection is a bitter game: we never get to it but
we always strive for it. we're nowhere nere perfection now, but keeping the
momentum going means giving credit where credit is due. if we keep holding
that bar higher and higher and higher eventually people will stop even trying
to jump. recognizing success and improvement is *criticial* to ensuring it
that is why when someone says, "kde doesn't work with others well" i will
stand up and rebut that statement with a vengence. we have, in just 4.0
alone, adopted d-bus, invested much more into HAL, dropped our own sound
server implementation, adopted the common mimetype database, moved to a
common icon naming specification and probably other things i've forgotten off
the top of my head here. oh, decibel: working with the telepathy project.
there's another one.
is there work left? topics left uncovered? yep. does it suck when one of those
topics is one you personally care about more than other topics? absolutely.
but if you want us (on all sides) to eventually get to your topic, show
respect and encouragement for the past wins. eventually we'll get to it all.
it just takes time.
and love. "all you need is love... bwa bwa bwabwa bwaa..."
