If this was called "Tolomberine" instead of
KDE4, I'm sure we wouldn't
be having this silly thread.
Absolutely agreed. Just imagine that KDE4 would have been named "Tolomberine"
and it would have been added to the repos just as another new desktop environment
like GNOME, XFCE, LXDE etc. And KDE3 would have been kept at the same time.
What do you think how many of current KDE4 users would have changed to Tolomberine
from their previous DE (very likely KDE3)? And how many new linux users would have
selected Tolomberine from the many DEs? I don't think that too many.
KDE4 could have been pushed down the throat of the users based on:
1. The credibility of earlier KDEs (mainly KDE3).
2. Stopping maintainance of KDE3, removong it from (official) repos.
3. Repeating the nonsense that KDE4 is the future and KDE3 is the past.
And I do not have any statistics, nor proofs. This is only what I think.
