We really need KDE. How on earth do we get them to just throw this thing out and start over? We are surely approaching the xfree96 moment, when the time comes to say that it may be all volunteer stuff, but actually, the once great KDE was a public asset, and you don't have the right to keep heaping horse manure on it and on the users....?

@Alcibiades......There is a similarity of FOSS projects to shareholders in a company. If enough shareholders decide to move the company in a certain direction, that is what will happen. But you must be an active shareholder.....not just an angry consumer.

These developers? We don't. They've made that quite clear over the past 3 years.

You need a new set of developers. Your best bet is to support the Trinity project with your time, effort, and possibly money. Getting paid does amazing things for a developer's willingness to work on a project. :)

@jdixon.........Bingo !!!! It is the only way, no matter which path you support. You have to get in there and be a shareholder in the company you like and try to see that it succeeds. Enough support and shareholders and it certainly will.
