As for KDE, my first experience was with a Kubuntu distro during my first year of college. The layout was very Windows-like, but that meant it was easy for new users to pick up because it resembled something they were familiar with. My OS at the time was Ubuntu 6.04 (I think), and I was already grooving to the GNOME way of doing things, but the KDE machine was still usable.
Then we upgraded the machine to the 4.X release. Big mistake. It was an unwieldy mess and it turned me off of KDE, because if this was were it was going, neither I nor anyone else in the lab wanted any part of it. I understand it's gotten better (and I have it installed on this very machine), but I haven't spent time with it to check.
Regarding your Tourette syndrome, you are one sad little fellow. You substitute vitriol for argument and insults in place of points. You've done nothing in this entire thread but go out of your way to make anyone with whom you disagree feel uncomfortable. What a fascinating life you must lead. Tell us of your accomplishments and achievements in life that we might be gratified and uplifted; inspired to greatness by your shining example! Or we can all take a good, hard look at reality and realize that you sound like a 12 year old who's off his meds. You're being a dick, and you impress no one - least of all with your intellect and mastery of prose.
