Linux SYS abandons KDE changes to GNOME


Linux SYS, with almost 18 GB / >4000 packages one of the biggest installation, downloaded about 30.000 times in the last half year, abandons KDE and changes to GNOME, currently recompiled and adjusted , for a new release of the distro expected during the next week.

/ No efficient error correction by the KDE developers.
/ KDE4 dont goes forwards, while GNONE progredes.
/ Too big packages, and building system not following the norms.
/ During a mobbing campagn against the distro in the kde-apps forum was not acted against this practics but ... closed the project page of the distro; by that mind of the people there this is connected with the quality/reliability of the participants of KDE and with doubts about long future of KDE. In all this points GNOME and its participants are more reliable.
/ Recent statements that 'KDE dont need users'. SYS birth exactly from the observation that many distros miss the population and Linux misses the general / desktop usability, because the programmers dont care the users. SYS in opposite to KDE want to be used and respects his users
