Not from the point of view of regular user such as myself. For me KDE
is not firm, not some organisation of people. For me KDE is just the
name of program (or suite of programs to be strict). A name that I
used for many years. And will use it because everyone knows what is
KDE3.5 and not many know what is TDE. And when I say TDE, I need to
explain that it is the same as KDE3.5 (with a few bugs fixed, few bugs

Is it registered trademark, btw? Is it against law and against wish of
KDE group (really?) to keep the name of program as it were? Why
someone should relate KDE 3.6 to KDE group if it will be written that
it is supported by Trinity group?

And you corrected me that it was developed. Of course it were. It is
just my English mistake. But it is still UI that was developed by KDE.
And there will be no cardinal changes (if there will be any chages at
all). It will be KDE UI on 99.9%. Otherwise there is no sense for this

Oh, about pronounciation it is my Russian experience that I forgot to
take into account. Excuse me! On Russian it sounds pretty well 'Gnom'
and 'KaDeYe'. :)) But 'TeDeYe' is funny! :)
