The fall of KDE?

Hi everyone.

A few days ago, I had trouble loading up my GNOME desktop, so I loaded up
the KDE one that I had installed as a "just-in-case", and because I wanted
to see how different it was from GNOME. I had initially liked KDE, back
about a year ago when I first tried it, but still stuck with GNOME because I
was familiar with it. If I had to switch to KDE, I could have, though. It
was very nice.

When I had trouble loading GNOME a few days ago (which is fine now, I was
just making a stupid mistake), I loaded up KDE to try to find out what the
problem was. KDE ran very slowly and was very different from how I
remembered it: as a useful, good-looking desktop environment.

It's not as good as it was. KDE's developers first need to kick Dolphin and
go back to Konqueror, and fix all of the other problems that this new
version has.
