Yea but I would leave all the eye candy turned on most likely.  I sort 
of like the eye candy stuff, as long as it works.  Heck, I like a lot of 
the stuff about KDE 4, I just need to wait until for the geeks that 
program it to get some more stuff working.  After all, KDE 4 is really a 
little baby right now.  It's crawling right now.  I expect it to start 
walking soon, then start running a little after that.  In several months 
KDE 4 will be all grown up and ready for track try outs. 

I didn't expect any less of KDE 3 when it came out.  It took them a good 
while to get KDE 3 working good.  They did tho.  If I need to upgrade my 
video card, I can handle that.  I'll just get the fastest AGP video card 
I can get at a reasonable price and put that little puppy in.  I plan to 
build a new rig soon.  It most likely will have a quad core AMD CPU and 
a few GBs of ram.  That should make KDE 4 really happy.   :-) 

Of course, for people that have older rigs than I do, they may have to 
stick with KDE 3 somehow or move to something else for a GUI.  Heck, I 
have had Fluxbox and Gnome on here before.  I just don't like them much 
but they are faster, especially Fluxbox.
