Wrong answer.  It's called the "K Desktop Environment" for a reason.  It 
was clearly alpha-quality and most definitely not ready for end users.  
We who are telling you this know that very well.  *That's the point, 
Dohan.*  What got released as "4.0" never, ever should've gotten 
released as anything other than "4.0 Alpha", because that's what it 
was--an alpha.  "4.1" should've been called "4.0 Beta" for the same 
reason.  I just hope the KDE team has learned never, ever to make that 
kind of mistake again.

Will let you know how "4.3 Beta1" usage goes.
