Just because the KDE3->KDE4 transitions went worse than expected does
not mean people need to make up far-fetched theories.
It wasn't me that made it up.
Well, I actually managed not to address you specifically.
In the two or so years since KDE 4.0 release
I've seen it written many times, in *buntu, Fedora, Mandriva, here and
other forums, that 4 was a complete ground up new creation. Yours is the
first mention I've seen of conversion from existing QT3 code to QT4 rather
than scratch write using QT4.
Nobody crazy enough to start rewriting as huge codebase as KDE3 was from
scratch would have managed to write that codebase first.
It's now even harder to believe the
conversion has gone so badly. I don't remember KDE 3.1 (the first I kept
up 24/7) being anywhere near as difficult to use as KDE 4.1.
That is because KDE3.0 would have been basically KDE2.3 if it wasn't for the
porting to Qt3. There were no major architectural changes like with KDE4 or
KDE2 (which started to be accepted by the majority of people only after 2.2.0
if I remember correctly). Introducing KDE4 should be compared to e.g.
introducing Linux 2.6 or GNOME2, which also faced quite some problems as far
as I remember.
