    Who cares?

    KDE is dead anyway. Delayed and still offering less new features. It cant be a surprise due to the increasing lack of developers. Stop beatong the dead horse.

        @funkstar:
        even in my ignore list, i can read your irrelevant posts because others quotes you, how bad.
        please, stop saying the same things again and again.
        I don't know what's your problem with kde, did it kill your cat maybe?
        but no developer, reading your posts, will change his mind and stop developing kde, nor any user will stop using it just because of your posts.

        Are you aware of this, right?

          Stop feeding the troll.

          GJ KDE team.

          I was using Kubuntu 12.04 for specific kernel version (VMWare had troubles with kernel found in kubuntu12.10, now it works).
          After upgrading to Kubuntu 12.10 I have thought that I have new PC in front of me

          Now I'm eager to test 4.10 as soon as it land in some (semi) stable Ubu repo.

            So you are refuting that a forum full of whiners can change the world? I agree with you. However for KDEs matter it still doesnt change anything. KDE is long past the point where it can be saved. Less users, less exposure in distributions and less developers. Hell they are even giving up on maintaining core parts. It is transfered to Digia (CLAed even).

            Suffering from a lowering user/dev/distro share is a bit sad, but surrendering your core and its copyleft to a God damn company equal to Oracle is a felony. So yeah KDE needs to go away for the sake of freedom. It is quote nice to see the idiots fucking it up

              Sorry for feeding, but according to polls KDE has far more users than gnome. It's also in far better shape and I bet there's far more developers working on it. It also runs on tablets unlike gnome shell which thinks my PC is the tablet.

                Good luck with that other DE that keeps removing features instead of adding.
                Oops.

                  Awesome release!

                  I'm using RC2 currently and it is already running great. Can't wait to update to final KDE SC 4.10. Great job KDE community!

                    I really believe that GNOME has lost its way, and its core developers are incompetent morons. I have been a long time user of GNOME and finally i decided to switch to KDE. KDE is not without problems, but at least they have a clear focus on the desktop.

                    GNOME targets a market it simply can't compete in. They do this in the hope that they will be able to earn a piece of the tablet/smartphone pie. They will fail. And Unity will fail too. They can't compete with Google or Apple, that is insane. And they will lose their installed base in the process. It is too late for them to admit they are wrong or reverse their course, so they will continue their destructive policies until all it remains from their projects is a Wikipedia article...

                    What i find lacking in KDE is Kwin. It's performance could be much improved. The GUI completely stalls after heavy I/O access, unlike the GNOME Shell. I believe the XCB support will help, we shall see. Other than that KDE is finally really stable and with plenty of features.

                    Let's just hope they will not lose their mind like the others and turn KDE in another tablet UI....

                      Every DE removes features. Or are you denying KDE is doing it? Anyway that wasnt the point. The case is KDE is sure lacking the high level of feature gain seen at the competetion. Sure you can deny this. Phoronix is after all nothing more than a forum for neckbeards on meth.

                          "Phoronix is after all nothing more than a forum for neckbeards on meth"
                          --> You write pretty often on Phoronix forums.
                          --> You are apparently a neckbeard on meth.

                          Makes sense and explains a lot.

                          No, KDE is not removing features. If that's what you see, cut on the meth or whatever it is you take/drink, because apparently it's bad for you.

                            funkSTAR is an obvious troll. You however, are the first to bring up GNOME in a post about KDE.
                            So I would be a bit careful about accusing people for trolling.

                            Edit: I forgot: Good job, KDE! I don't use your stuff, but it's good to see that you are going strong!

                              Oh sweet irony. KDE is raped by QMLism these days. Because the former owner of Qt decided so. Thats right; KDE have no choice but following the trend of whatever stupid non-linux, non-widget ideas surface from Qt. Right now it is declarative shit designed for phones and tablets which are pulled from Qts ass. Nobody knows about tomorrow. Maybe Microsoft will be in charge (again).

                              Secondly other DEs heading towards making 2013 laptops with touch screen work. Whats wrong with that? It is not about tablets per se. It is about fitting laptops anno 2k13.
