"Do KDE developers, like Apple developers, presume 
that everyone already knows? "

Sounds like a blanket statement about intentions to me.  Stick to facts 
then, please, if you don't want a reaction.

OK, simply put:  on gnome you get more info about gnome apps.  On kde, you 
get more info about kde apps.

Gnome shows Comment= keys on hover, KDE shows GenericName entries in the 
menus.  Gnome ignores and doesn't use GenericName anywhere.  KDE doesn't use 
Commment= keys (for the most part).
Does that help?

Now, imo, KDE at least embraces the desktop-spec here, and I'll take any 
bugs wrt missing Comment= keys in .desktop files, and help fix it.  I've 
been virtually begging fedora/gnome developers to do the same for supporting 
GenericName= keys for quite awhile, with little success to date.
