Parent article: UserLinux: Autopsy
A user wouldn't realise a change of the
MTA (Postfix or Exim), but she does realise any change from Kmail to
others MUAs. The same, if not more, applies to the desktop environment:
it is another program.
Users don't care about the MTA running in their computers, but they do
care about the programs they use every day. By selecting one desktop you
are taking lot of decisions for the user, not for improving her/his
direct experiencie, but due to legal --licences?-- or technical reasons
--easier to maintain?--. Hence, adopting just one of the two major users'
desktop environment and simultaneously accusing KDE developers of taking
care only developers' interests is contradictory, to say the least.
