thats right - but I still there are lots of problems.
like konqueror still mostly crashing on flash sites, despite not showing 
anything useful on these sites (whereas konq / kde3.5.10 works quite nicely 
with gnash or flashplugin-nonfree).
besides many kde3 apps are still not ported to kde4, and yes, I know they can 
be used on kde4, but often show odd behaviour.
however, the main reason for me not to make the switch to kde4 is its darn 
slowness, which makes my 2.8 ghz dell gx270 behave like a slug.
and THAT is what really drives me nuts with kde4.
things in this area have been improved, yes, but all in all no real solution 
(nvidia driver issue doesn't fit here, intel onboard graphics).
I hope this will get sorted out some time.
