KDE 12

Sure, check out [] for their project overview. Basically it's an umbrella project for better human interface and eye candy for the KDE project. It involves a community re-write of portions of the KDE libraries, and is already quite far along. Check out the link [] for a neat looking mockup of some proposed functionality.

Reintermediate visionary web services?
Empower value-added synergies?
Maximize virtual solutions?
Leverage user-centric methodologies?

Or at least architect synergistic convergence?

No, that would be GNOME.

KDE actually works.
