FWIW, if there's any single person the comments could have been targeted 
at, it's probably me, as I've been probably the most vocal of the "old 
timers".  But I took no offense.  In some ways, he's correct (there 
/were/ pretty fundamental changes).  In others, I may not agree (a person 
set in their ways isn't the type that's constantly out there trying beta 
or even live sources software, and thus able to state with some 
experience that such is what kde feels like at this point), but I can see 
how it could seem so from his viewpoint (which would therefore make his 
comments not "gratuitous", by definition), and everyone's entitled to an 
opinion, which they can certainly make known, as I do my own.  So no 
offense taken.  He's simply speaking his mind as I have.

OTOH, the same could be said about both of you, now, simply being honest 
about being a bit taken aback.  And round and round the logic goes... =:^)

But anyway, just a post to say I didn't find it a big deal here, even if 
it was arguably aimed at me (not sayin' it was, just that it could appear 
that way, so if anyone's going to take offense, by rights, it should be 
me, and if I'm not...).
