Someone means that we are "ignorance towards the rest of linux users". :-( But
please read the whole email.

To Whom it may concern,

I switched over to linux to escape the oppression of proprietarty software. Kdevelope is a great IDE. 
I love it and cannot find anything comparable. The thing is I hate KDE (No
Offense). It is slow and a memory hog. I have no reason to use it and refuse to
use it. I am forced to use other programs such as ViM for c++ programming. This
is bad. There are many more like me who are forced to use other editors. I
don't see a need to create a KDE c++ environment over an X environment. Your
ignorance towards the rest of linux users is not a good thing. This is what
Microsoft did and I wont fall into the trap nor will a lot of other users that
I know of. It is just as easy to make it for X and it would be nice to see an
end to this type of software developement. All in all KDevelope is (in my
opinion) the best c++ env. for Linux but I am forced to use other programs. I
don't understand why this issue hasn't yet been addressed but I feel it would
be in your best interest, along with mine and a lot of other users, if you
would come out with an x version. QT or no QT.

Thank you for your time,

Mak Lpiani
