that it seems like many of the issues people bump
into with KDE4 are
traceable back to config issues, KDE3 installed, or them trying to
force KDE4 to do something it can't yet.
If they want to force KDE4 to do something it can not do, it is probably
because of it could be done in the window manager (KDE3) they used earlier.
Isn't it a logical expectation that if I can do something in KDE3 then I
can do it in KDE4? Isn't it a logical expectation that KDE4 should be an
improved version of KDE3, and that it should work similarly to KDE3? The
name - KDE - implies that. That's what normal logic dictates.
You mean like Windows Vista vs XP? See, even the big boys get it wrong
sometimes. I don't know how many times I found myself tearing my hair out and
cursing Vista under my breath (or sometimes not so quietly) when I tried to do
basic stuff that was easy in XP but required jumping through hoops in Vista.
Even simple stuff like configuring networking - configuring custom network
setting seems to be much harder even in Win 7 that it was in XP because so
much stuff moved around and was hidden from "mere users".
The switch from KDE3 to KDE4, whilst there was some adjusting, I found to be
much more natural and easier than from XP to Vista or 7. There are still
changes occuring (even from 4.4 to 4.4.93 there are differences with some
stuff moving around and minor changes in how some things work) but overall I
don't miss KDE3 at all now (I still use XP though if I *have* to use Windows).
And re Mac OSX, I found it much less of a jump from KDE4 to Mac OSX and back
again than from KDE3 or any version of Windows.
Just my $0.02 worth.
