In regard to caring about users, I think it is important to note why
many users felt like they were left in the dust. KDE 4.0 had a rocky
start, and was not ready for usual consumption for some time by many
users running into bugs. It was a beta release that wasn't beta. I
think many users were forced to upgrade to 4.0 had a very difficult
time understand what was going on, especially since the very loved 3.5
was totally out the window (when there could have been continued
support for a short time, until a stable KDE4 was released). If KDE
4.8 was released exactly when 4.0 was, users would be more likely to
have switched. KDE 4.8 is very stable and works great for almost all
users. The problem is the past 8 releases that have driven everyone
insane, and they are now biased against the KDE4 experience.

I dunno that was sort of my thought
