Since I have to support Windows users as well as Linux, I

It looks like KDE 4!

I've been saying that KDE4 looks like Vista for a whole now(other than
the new taskbar in 7)

So, what's going on? Is Microsoft ripping off the KDE community,
or visa versa?
Either way, this is a "good thing" that should make it easier
for Windows users to move to Linux desktops.

No, it's not a good thing for a lot of us who don't care for the new
"direction" that KDE4 has taken. I'll stick with KDE3/openSUSE 11.0
until I can make KDE4 work like need it to work and not the other way
around. These changes haven't been good for a lot of us, and the KDE4
devs are still forgetting our friends with disabilities that can't use
KDE4 at all in some cases.

Just my own not so humble opinion.
