If anything, Martin Graesslin is "pathetic and juvenile". Every
message he has sent here has been arrogant and demeaning of our group.
It really blows my mind that he keeps pretending that he has has no
part in the negativity. This entire thread is a response to his
attacks (valid or not) on the TDE project. He has made several high
profile blog posts regarding Trinity and  cast it in his own light.
That is fine by me, but after saying all of that crap, and then coming
here and pretending he wants us to use KWin? It's a double standard.

It is clear that the only people using TDE are people who are very
consciously doing so. They are all aware of KDE4, Gnome and other
projects. I keep trying to say "live and let live" but it doesn't get
much headway.

In respect to stability of kicker, and your concerns regarding people
using your technology and changing it; such is life. There is no
clause within GPL saying "yes you can only use this source code if the
original author perceives it to be an improvement"

If you'd like I am sure we would be more than willing to rename it
from Kicker to another name YOU personally find more suitable.
