Ah well, let us go into some facts then shall we. Been a big KDE fan
from version 1, used it for many years (that dates back from 97),
absolutely loved KDE 3.x being the best version in my opinion.
Then came 4, the deal breaker for me had to be my dual screen setup
not handled right anymore whereas any other WM, XFCE and fluxbox to
name two, worked flawlessly. I waited quite some time before making
the transition onto KDE 4 back then, i believe it was 4.2 i tested.
I loved most of the 4 new layout, I hated all the functionalities lost
in the process, amarok being another example of good player gone bad.
So in short, as free software is about choice, i chose no longer to
use KDE and mostly use XFCE these days.
There, you have the long FUD, enjoy.
