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.
This is a bad example. It would be good if Vista was called eg. Windows XP2.
Vista name does not do anything with XP name. Both product are made by MS
and both are OS-s. That's all.
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.
OSX is a good example. The jump from OS9 to OSX included a complete change
of the underlying system. Still from the point of users it acted very similary.
One did not have to relearn hot to use OSX if was familiar with previous versions.
