After all, I don't know how much value have rational reasonings to someone who believes in sky pixies.

Well, it's really not that hard to find. You can start by checking these freaks on Wikipedia: Renee Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Thomas Aquinas, Henri Bergson, C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, etc.

You only prove that you are completely clueless. No matter what you think about Christianity, comparing Jesus to this Jedi clown or Joseph Smith is just plain stupid. Try to spend less time on Slashdot and read some books. Maybe something written by C.S. Lewis or G.K. Chesterton. Like you, they were also firm atheists, but they managed to use their brains and understand their errors. Get smart, will you?

I see KDE as a very good, highly configurable and modern desktop environment but still wonder why it is not yet the desktop environment of choice for the "major" distros. Why?
I think one of the top reasons is that some distros appreciate that Gnome has a stable release cycle. As I understand, KDE will follow this model as well (releasing a stable version regularly) so hopefully more distros will include it by default. We'll wait and see.
