I'm afraid I'm not seeing a very convincing argument as to why all these KDE
applications are inferior. I use Kmail, Konqueror, and Kopete because they
have features I use that the other applications you have listed don't. To
simply say, Kopete < Gaim is not enough. Many would disagree with you and
you're not giving any valid reasons why. Can you so easily quantify the
usefulness of an application to the community in general? I do not believe
so. KDE is shaped by what the community wants and needs, and if you want
your voice to be heard a more compelling argument is required.
On another note, have you had a look at kde.openoffice.org ?
