i found it overtly hostile to basic tasks, like finding a web browser in an app menu

plus it caused the boot-to-GUI proces to take 3 minutes

 because, at least on Gentoo, it requires compiling all of KDE and QT, which can be a multi-day affair (compare w/ 5 seconds for dwm, 10 mins for xorg, and 15 for webkit, a 'WebOS' system in a half hour)

then when you launch a KDElibs app, it launches 10 odd daemons, kdeserver, dcop, etcetc, sucking 200 MB of ram

the hodgepodge of panels and default icons was certainly messy
