I’m really tired of hearing all the same things again. Can’t we just have a page on the front of which points everybody who’s interested to the reasoning of doing a .0 release with quite a lot less features than the current stable 3.5.8 release? And then just post the link to that on each and every newspage, blog or other place where people complain about lack of features, instability and what not in KDE 4.0?

I mean, anybody who really wants to understand the why, can already find out, there’s no point in posting yet another blog entry about the reasons. All others don’t care anyway, there’s no point in trying to educate them, they don’t want to be educated. Obviously these people are just interested in argueing, without any reasoning, they’re just looking for a fight.

So fellow developers: Lets just stick to the decision that has been made and move on (I know most of you already do). History will tell, wether this is a new era for KDE or the beginning of its doom. Either way its really been enough blogging/commenting/mailing about why we do a release now and what the downsides are.
