Comment Re:It's been dying since KDE3 (Score 1) 515

Honestly it's been so long since I used it, I don't remember exactly. I just remember there being things I wanted to do, that Gnome could do, that it didn't support. I recall trying KDE4 to get those things but it being buggy and incomplete. Sorry, I know that's rather vague, but again it's been a long time.

FOSS developers are free to do what they like. I was quite happy with KDE3, although it was getting a bit outdated. However starting with KDE4 it seemed like too much attention was being given to gimmicks and core functionality and stability were suffering. I tried to go back a few times but never could. IMO that was the beginning of the end. I've run most of the major desktop environments on linux, and many of the minor ones, and for workstation use I'm currently happy with i3. On laptops Gnome is fine or Unity is acceptable. I'm not a teenager/20-something who cares about customizing everything on every computer anymore. I just want something stable and that works consistently across releases.

I didn't write that carefully enough. I also didn't read the parent closely enough. I meant they would have expected their IP was not publicly exposed. I think was really responding more to a comment on the parent post than on the parent post itself. My bad. Been a long day.
