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.
