KDE 4 is just like Linux. it is, and will hopefully continue
to be, a work in progress. The world evolves. We just need to
learn to accept it. :-)
I can't. We went from KDE 3 that worked 99% of the time
to KDE 4 that not only doesn't come close to that, but made
many changes just for the sake of making changes.
Linux also has not progressed ever upwards. But the regressions
have been small and short lasting. It is now quite stable and
I expect it to "just work".
I need KDE, after all this time, to "just work" as well. If it
doesn't I am not dealing with an operating system, but with a toy.
Like many others, I use Linux as a production system. I can't
stop while KDE matures.
What does not work for you and what version of kde4 are you using.
Then i can tell you if it is working in the version of kde4 i have.
which is kde4.4.1 release 227
I am NOT working on kde4. I have systems that I must keep running
and I need to do productive work on them. I sttaed this in
I'm certainly not adverse to learning a new interface. I've been
learning new interfaces since 1955 when I first programmed a computer.
No, that's not a typo.
But I am adverse to a major change in what I have to do to configure
the KDE 4 interface. Things are not where they used to be and
some things don't (yet) work.
I know that I will have to adapt to KDE 4. I am trying to delay
that change and hoping that KDE 4 will mature in the interim. And
I am also doing something I've never had to do before. I'm
setting up a separate machine to run 11.2 so I can play with KDE 4
without screwing up production that I have to do.
I should NOT have to do that with a real distribution.
