Just so it’s not conspicuous that I, am now even mentioning KDE after it’s major release 4.0
Even months, even a year before KDE 4 was supposed to be out, we were all hyped, from brainstorming to I don’t know what.
At some point, it was around when dolphin was out, talks started that new KDE is actually crap, that’s it’s not worth anything, bla bla. And then as the time went on, it got to the point where it was impossible, those who claimed they had KDE under their fingers were only saying the bads things. It got so bad, that at one point, it was around time Gnome 2.20 was released I reached to test out new Gnome. I was a sworn Gnome user, back in the day I used to swear in name of RedHat :)
Around this time, as far as I can remember betas were out, I tested every single beta, and I was … demolished. I couldn’t believe they could release something that buggy, that something that buggy could even be in beta. In meantime, I ditched Gnome :)
KDE4 RC’s were already out, basically the same story, and it went throughout RC’s.
