Yes indeed. The 'fallback' is right. Shell is back to the menu's in a modern way. Without a desktop which we
use everyday. I don't need a hatefull OS for a handheld on my desktop or laptop.
The problem is I know KDE very well and I loved KDE =<3.5.
So they 'made' KDE 4.x.x
It is usable now, but there are still all kinds of annoyances. Like the panels, which are not 'free', config etc.
So it could be an alternative for Gnome, but not fully in my opinion.
I downloaded and installed PCLOS KDE on a partition and it is not wrong.
Xfce does not all things the way I want it to. Further it's allright.
And: in fact I don't want Windows again. The last Windows for me was Millennium.
But if 'they' are going to force it upon me
, I have use Windows again.
