KDE 4.0.3 (which is the first KDE 4 version Fedora shipped) worked just fine
for daily use, I used it on my notebook computer just fine, and at 4.1.2
both my machines were running KDE 4. Most other KDE SIG members started
using KDE 4 full time even before me.

But anyway, it's pointless to argue whether KDE 4.0 was crap or not, the
fact is that KDE 4.2 (i.e. what we have now) is clearly a serious successor
to KDE 3.5 as one of the 2 main desktops.

But are they opposed to calling the GNOME spin "GNOME spin" rather
than "Desktop spin"? If they don't care either way, fixing the name won't
hurt them in any way.

It already exists, it's called Bluecurve/Quarticurve. :-)

We also ship things like gtk-qt-engine and the QGtkStyle which is now part
of Qt 4.5 which allow using widget styles for one in the other.

Well, the KDE desktop can be used without the apps and vice-versa.
