From my point of view these kind of comments are very close to troll 

So there is one version for KDE's desktop product and one version for *all* 
application products.

How do users of vendors cope who do not release all their applications in one 

How, for example, do users of Microsoft Office cope with the "problem" that 
Windows has a different version number than Office?
Are they in panic when Skype does not share the version of one of these two?
Are they close to dispair when .Net or Visual Studio bring in even more 
version numbers to the mix?

Assuming they cope just fine, only keeping track of versions of products they 
themselves use, why would users of KDE software be incapable of doing the 
For sure users of KDE software have the same intelectual capacity as users of 
Microsoft software, do they not?
