And btw you have not posted yet the sources of your claim that KDE devs

on KDE 4 being beta befor 4.5.

I don't know if the poster is kde developer

FULL STOP!

"I don't know if the poster is kde developer"

So why even mention it? Stop trolling.

but as I recall his remarks were not denied by any of
the kde developers who posted to that thread.

FULL STOP!

Claims need to be refuted? That is both dumb and not common practice.

If I claim the sky is green with yellow polka-dots... if one one rises
up to say: "Nope, it is varying shade of blue" then my claim has merit?
Seriously? That is *not* how discourse works, and every adult knows
that.

I assume you are referring to the passage:
<quote>
Unfortunately, they claimed 4.2 was ready for normal use, but I'd say
nowhere near close, tho much improved, to the late alpha or early beta
release stage. It should be mentioned that with the /claim/ of ready
for normal use, kde pretty much dropped support for the previous version
here as well, with bugs being closed as WONTFIX for kde3. 4.3 is a
later beta. Most of the basic functionality is finally there, but
there's still a lot everybody, users and developers alike, says is still
broken.

Note the use of the pronoun "they"; this clearly refers to "KDE
developers" as a set that does not include the poster.

And, BTW, "dropped support for the previous version here as well, with
bugs being closed as WONTFIX" is *exactly* what a new major release
means! I'm on to version Y of my project... bugs filed for X if my
product will always get marked WONTFIX... upgrade to version X.
