No, you do

This should be called KDE 4.0 Alpha.

Significantly missing functionality and crashes
of critical software (konsole) means not ready
for Beta-test designation.

The missing functionality I can (partly) agree with, but the crashes are
mostly an 11.0 phenomenon. I've been running KDE4 on 10.3 from the build
service for a while now, and while I have seen a few problems, mostly it's
been working very well. Certainly not the crash fest that seems to be going
on in 11.0 (which by the way *is* an alpha)

I personally suspect the new version of gcc


I agree. Obviously, Aaron has some fascination with verbally threatening developers he doesn't agree with... but anyway. I haven't run 11.0 alphas yet, I'm probably going to start with Alpha 3, but I did run 4.0 under 10.3 and I thought it worked pretty well. Missing features, I saw some. I'm not typically a KDE user, but some I did see.

I'm optimistic about KDE 4.x's 11.0 progress and I think it will work well when the release is here. Of course, I'm also a Ron Paul supporter, so maybe some optimism is running abundant right now...
Madness takes its toll

Ain't that the truth...
