when developers think they know what the users want

Lately on the kde-core-devel there is a [http://lists.kde.org/?t=116336735900002&r=1&w=2|thread] which started innocently by asking the permission to move an application back to kdegraphics, degenerated into a small my app is better than yours type of crap and now it's getting to the a nice discussion on what users want or expect from an application. I will post my comment here since I don't have write access to this mailing list and I also don't want to keep adding to the traffic of the mailing list (and mostly I want to save precious time to the moderators :) )

Why I do this? a)because I can and b) I'm starting to be tired of the
moronic choices made by all the currently available distributions... I mean the computer is supposed to let me do my work, now I have the impression I'm back to the "good" old days of the winblows 3.1 and 95 era when you had to fight the software to make them work for you ... and it's not good.

ok ...

It seems that some people didn't get point of my [:node/2299|last blog], it wasn't about
the fact the project was half open half closed source, I understand that some really critical part of the hardware design were those who gave us our competitive edge in the highly
