I'd say that the subject line is misleading - if KDE4 was "simply" broken, 
it would have been fixed already :-)  Unfortunately most of the breakage is 

That said, I agree with most of his points, except: 
#1 - Akonadi doesn't appear at all broken to me; 
#12 - Konqueror does work as it should with a middle click; 
#14 - which it it took me some time to find. That is NOT the default, even 
though I've always used tree view myself (and since he has no explanation, 
work-around _or_ fix for this one, I suspect it isn't really valid, anyway); 
#17 - not only does it work, I had never tried it before, so I've learned 
something new.
#22 - works (and iirc it was NOT a default under kde3 - I had to mess with 
the config to get that to work)

And then of course there are all the things he says are broken that I would 
never use anyway...
