Whenever I think about this difference given for java and JavaScript given on SO One is essentially a toy, designed for writing small pieces of code, and traditionally used and abused by inexperienced programmers. The other is a scripting language for web browsers.

Yup that is what I was referring too!

But don't get me wrong, I am with you(Narcocide) on the +5 Insightful! I more just meant the cynicism we hold for NSA is such that we assume that when they appologise, its for getting caught not for doing wrong.

KDE5 or what ever the correct thing to call it is, is WAY more functional then kde4 when it first came out. But at this point I don't see a compelling reason to upgrade on my day-2-day machine. But dont see myself waiting too long either.

From a user perspective, it just feels like a modern skin with super fast hassle free search. So shouldn't be to long before I upgrade (I hope).

Visually, kde5 is really nice, but not nice enough or stable enough or feature rich enough to upgrade from 4 at the moment.
Im sure the people who grew up on kde 3 said the same about kde4 when it came out but early adopters like me put up with it because it was shiny and had not realised how powerful kde 3 was.

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
