You are not alone.  I'm not ready for KDE 4 either, or it is not ready 
for me yet.  Anyway, finding a distro that still has KDE 3.5 will be 
fun.  I downloaded a Madriva DVD but have not had the chance to install 
it yet to see what is included on it.  Would you be interested in 
Mandriva at least until KDE 4 got fixed where it was usable?  I could 
install and at least see if the basics worked or not.
