KDE vs. Trinity: Is One Really Better?

I always read Bruce's writings with a proverbial grain of salt. He tends toward sensationalism and likes to play a game of creating rifts like he did in this article. His journalism tends toward what used to be called muckraking. When he writes in that mode I remind myself that everything is his opinion only and subjective. Everybody has an opinion and a poop chute. Both often stink. :)

Nothing he wrote requires or demands a public response. He has his opinion and we should let that be.

So much for that.

I am concerned about his reports of instability. We should receive such comments seriously. I hope he filed bug reports or contacted somebody on the development team. Even if he didn't this kind of publicity dictates that quality assurance must be a priority over release schedules. That means a lot of usability testing and not just pumping out code and packages.

I hope everybody here receives his article in a constructive manner. :)
