Re: [vox] Does Anybody Like KDE 4.x?

Been a KDE user for a while.  I tried to like KDE 4.  Tried very hard.  The rearrangement of the menus, the control center changes, all seemed very "change for change's sake", and not due to some deep problem with layout, usability, or some issue like that.  After trying to like it, found that I didn't like it much at all.

That being said, I have high hopes for it.  Looking at KDE 4 is like looking at a 1973 Toyota Corona.  It might be kinda clunky right now, but it will lead to the modern Toyota Corolla (the most popular model ever sold).  At least, that's my take.  All that being said, this 3->4 transition rolls in many fundamental changes; many more than 1->2 and 2->3.

I'll keep checking in, and finally switch when they have heard the complaints and fixed most of them.  Seems like 4.2 is out, so I should check again.
