That was basically what I ment with "Features count most",
stability/performance/bug-fixing don't get the attention they deserve.

The question is where to go from here on. As far as I can see things
won't chance for KDE. As a user, I could try Gnome3 but I am afraid it
needs at least a year to mature and I dislike their idea of hiding
"whats behind" from users.
I didn't like xfce years ago, but haven't tried it lately.

Time will show ;)
