Not in the slightest. I just dislike seeing you argue with Dotan for what he 
got right, when I think there are valid grounds for disagreement with the 
rest of his hypothesis.  I think releasing Kubuntu with KDE4 was seriously 
wrong, and I've said so often.  I'm still of two minds about releasing it in 
Jaunty - if we'd never had the disgrace that was Intrepid, I suspect I would 
have been pretty unhappy with KDE4.2, too (and, for heaven's sakes, this 
ISN'T KDE 4.2 - it's 4.0.2, at best).
