Thought I'd try some levity, mind you its nice to see a slanging match and not be on the receiving end for once :-D

TBH I've been a loyal KDE user since, Ooh SuSE or SuSE Pro or well donkeys years ago when actually KDE was the default for SuSE I have to say I'm not overly impressed with KDE4 either although it is getting better. Sure it looks nice and glitzy with some nice widgety poo's (OMG a non standard English term, quick hide) but in my own experience, for example, Kontact/Kmail is/was flaky.

The problem for me is I love Kontact, I can stomach Thunderbird as second best but personally hate all the others so when 4.0 came out and Kontact/Kmail refused to create filters or let me create sub folders I wept buckets for KDE3

Interestingly in my personal experiences I think some of these 'issues' (I'm talking specifically about Kontact4 here) might be distro related for example on Fedora everything seems to work fine on ArchLinux it complains about my hosted email providers certificate every time a mail check completes (Yes I've checked all the settings and cant see anything I've missed) and as I said earlier on openSUSE I cant create filters or sub folders from the filter manager.

Now OK I hold my hand up and admit I'm an appalling contributor and have not submitted a bug report but then again I've heard that on some occasions a less than friendly attitude permeates there as well?

I'm eagerly awaiting 11.1 so I can 'blow away' my current install and hopefully become a KDE4 lover too. :-)
