I also do not understand the point. When used on desktop or notebook and
needed a fast boot I always use hibernate.
When I'm on the road with the notebook (happens from time to time) I need
just boot once (enable wireless and boot into the !on the road profile")
and then always hibernate. Works like a charm.

What I like in TDE is the focus on keeping the working old stuff until the
new one gets usable enough. So far KDE4 and KDE5 are big disappointment.
I'm just wondering who's using this crap and KDE keeps promising that it
would get better ... but it doesn't and the years go by.

I also think there are many bugs and fields for development, where we can
really improve TDE and keep it usable (example what Timothy did with HAL).
Example bluetooth support with bluez5. So why would one spend precious time
on doing something less usable ... just to have something shiny and
fast(er) booting ... this makes me lol and makes me sad in thesame time.

There should be a priority list like in the old times, where we all join
forces and kill the problems one after another.
