State of the KDE Union

Jul 20, 2009, 12:34 (5 Talkback[s])

"I don't think so. I just switched back to KDE, with 4.3. So far it's liveable. It's not finished by any means. It's not even as feature complete as GNOME. That, however won't be hard, given GNOME's past of removing functionality every release.

"The fact is, we can't compete yet. I was infuriated by the loss of some of the applications most dear to me, I coded religiously in gedit, now replaced with vim and geany. I miss gnome-do, replaced with the stock KDE launcher. gnome-terminal by konsole. Rhythmbox by amaroK ( and then by mplayer. No offence to the amaroK guys, but that latest release is a major regression ). Ubuntu One is a MAJOR issue. I can't use it any more."
