Hi Duncan,

I followed nearly a dozen postings on this issue ( _what_issue_really_? ) in 
the last days. In my opinion this war is not helpfull, not fair and is 
frustating for all the people working on KDE-4.

I build a linux system with KDE-3.5 from the scratch, and, in parallel, a 
KDE-4.3.0 for a user "kde4", according to advices given by the KDE-people. 
Step by step, I am now using KDE-4 for most applications I used in KDE-3, 
grosso modo without problems. I am doing payments with QBanking, controlling 
transactions, managing bank accounts etc. with KmyMoney, working with 
virtualboxes running windows, using kmail, Staroffice. etc.  So in no way I 
can agree with you, that KDE-4 is not usable, compared with KDE-3.  I am 
using it already !

I would suggest to stop the turn-around-fight. It does not help, as the only 
clear issue seems to be that you dont like KDE-4. Better, in my oppinion at 
least, would be to concentrate in singular problems and to try to solve them, 
together with, not against the developers.
