    The reason why a large majority of the *nix world has a hard-on for C and dislikes C++ is because former has a stable ABI and latter doesn't.

    Unless the C compiler you're using is broken, you can link any shared object compiled with whatever C compiler. Try this with C++ and you're in a world of hurt, requiring you to use practically more or less the same compiler release as the rest of your shared objects or static libraries to avoid any troubles.

    That and language bindings.

      This apparently isn't an 'official' version either, just by one of the prominent devs. The fact that he kept it under wraps for months doesn't make much sense either.

        I hope you meant KDE 4.0, because I have yet to find a glitch with KDE 4.1. It is very good, and, from what I have have heard, KDE 4.2 will overcome my only real concern; it will allow desktop icons.

        KDE 4.x (x > 1) is really nice.

          KDE 4.1.3 here. I'm not using it much though :P There are some glitches I'm not able to solve. Font rendering is messed up with DejaVu Sans:

          There are sound problems with OSS4 too and kwin crashes sometimes on logout. Also, when I login, some application pop-up from nowhere even though I closed them before logging out. And Yakuake pops up even though I didn't press F12.
