Jokes aside, I was a huge fan of KDE3 and I think the transition to version 4 was wrongly handled. First iterations were buggy and scared away the user base, the Oxygen theme is ugly (OK, that's a subjective reason) and it felt overall bloated. They screwed key applications like Amarok and complicated the desktop experience. I wish a project like Trinity
had the same traction as MATE or Cinammon.
As for kde/gnome-look.org, it's sad, they bring me a lot of good memories. I do think they still have a chance to reinvent themselves, it's just matter of cleaning up the house and start from scratch, catching up with the new versions and branches/forks.
Right now I'm bouncing between XFCE and Openbox and I'm not looking back.
