Is KDE still a thing?

Many, many years ago I used KDE. I liked it. One day, after an upgrade, it started playing a little login jingle (just like Windows). The only way I could find to turn the jingle off (I didn't look very hard) was to switch to Gnome. Gnome looked a lot better than it had the last time I compared the two, so I stopped using KDE. I figured KDE had lost the plot.

I tried KDE again a year or two back, just to see what it was like. It had gone for the "phone interface" style, with almost everything hidden away behind magical hot spots that you had to try to find. That lasted just long enough for me to find the magic logout hotspot. KDE had definitely lost the plot.

Gnome also eventually lost the plot, but I find Mate to be an adequate replacement.

What is wrong with these people?
