Apart from the stability issues that will be solved along the way, i believe its the main look
& feel that is most disappointing...
I like *part* of the Oxygen icons... dislike the filesystem ones... but that can be solved
well the main *skin* of KDE4 is disappointing, it could have been more striking if adopeted a
more *Liquid* L&F... but the plasma stuff is simply superb...
I don't like Dolphin, it should have been a WWW navigator instead, with *part* of Mozilla
extras adopteded( rejoin efforts)... Konqueror a superior file manager, would have been even
more superior with the features now in Dolphin...
Plasma, Phonon, solid, other... are simply superior, KDE has everything to succeed if it
detaches its applications & desktop of cumbersome dependencies, they are good enough to stand
by themselfs... and focus on the desktop itself, Plasma for a real 3D environment with Z
movement... and let L&F to the users.
Then complaints will stop for sure.
(how nice if parts of the underlying base of KDE 4 could be made part of a common Desktop
methaphor!!... no wonder some voices are restless!...)
