But that's exactly my point, there is posts about fear/paranoia of
conflicts here in this thread, not a factual argument on real existing
Like I said before, KDE3.5 coexisted very well with KDE4 since 2009.1 on
Mandriva and Trinity is even more so being developed with coexistence in
mind, so there shouldn't be any unsolvable issues.

But again my point is issues should be debated constructively and factually
when they are being encountered, not a whole software package being
dismissed in advance out of general fear and paranoia.

This is exactly what I would call a reasonable factual argumentation.
