Wow, KDE is starting to make a noticable improvement, I think I'm moving to KDE with the next time I install Linux.

Edit:
They put off moving the applications to Anakondi? awwww :(

It's too bad that developer interest isn't high enough in it.. I would appreciate the programs that I use on Windows 7 to be compatible with Linux..

There is some limitations, plus WINE apps aren't supported by the companies. And Linux will never take over if it's depending on WINE
