How a �Welded-to KDE3.5 User� Began a Move to KDE4.4 Part IIII

“This is an addition to the series that was never at first
envisaged. Indeed, within a recent thread (shown immediately below)
and in my response to “hkwint”, I stated very clearly that I had
absolutely no intention of writing further on KDE4, but this
situation almost developed with a life of its own and I now think
it needs to be brought out into the open for the LXer readers.

“http://lxer.com/module/forums/t/31457/ As I noted elsewhere on
LXer, I moved from KDE3.5 to KDE4 much later than many others (5
months or so ago), so all my problems/frustrations and successes
have only just emerged, whereas most other players met them three
years ago when KDE4 was first released and under much more
difficult and demanding circumstances. Nevertheless, I began to ask
serious questions about the structure, funding and objectives of
the KDE development team, and again, I place the blame wholly on
the shoulders of “hkwint” (with some laughter but also with a great
deal of gratitude) in that he suggested on that same thread above
that I should contact two people within KDE and see if some answers
were forthcoming. This seemed an excellent idea to me, given that I
now had two names of people involved in promoting KDE software;
moreover, if you want the truth as to how people within KDE itself
view those questions, that is where you must go.”
