With regards to your other points; I know my setup doesn't necessarily lend itself to total stability, but I've had very few library version or other problems before, over several KDE 4.x versions on this install. I've used every single 4.x.x release from 4.0 onwards, this is the only one so far where I've experienced serious new bugs/regressions in most areas. I'm not saying that none of the trouble is caused by my distro, but I highly doubt that's the only cause.
Now some people are taking funky seriously, and Digia is blackmailing KDE into rewriting several million lines of code in QML :rofl:.
QML is being used for desktop widgets, because it's a convenient way to do that, that's it. Nobody is going to rewrite all of KDE in QML, FFS, just stop believing random rubbish on the internet.
Still, I hadn't realized he had been toking with Lawrence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye3ecDYxOkg
