Reading this "article" you say KDE 4.x is terrible. You ask me to hear you out. And then you make no effort to explain yourself.
What is terrible? KDE 4 presents more choice and flexibility over any other current desktop environment. It is easy to use, intuitive and sexy.
I don't run with any desktop widgets as I'm not staring at my desktop. KDE 4 is more than widgets.
KDE is Sonnet, Phonon, Plasma, Nepomuk, Oxygen, Akondi, and more. I absolutely love the new notification system, with built-in extenders. I love that they brought the system tray into the 21st century. I love that my desktop containment can be any number of different things.
They took the power of KDE 3, and cleaned up the interface so it didn't look as cluttered.
Again, what exactly is your problem specifically?
