Akonadi and Strigi and similar technologies are critical to taking the desktop
to the next level of efficiency and effectiveness. Admittedly, that's
still in the
early stages, but it is clearly where we need to go.

As for Plasma, it allows for some pretty interesting things, it just remains
to be seen which ones will be cool and shiny and which ones will offer
fundamental improvements over the old standard (of course, that same is
true for alternate WMs (I use Awesome WM for good reason), but they don't
get the level of attention that KDE and Gnome do).
