While I like some of KDE 4, if I could just stick with KDE 3, I would do 
just that.  KDE 3 works for me and I am already used to using it as 
well.  KDE 4 doesn't, at least not yet.

I think KDE 4 should have been something different too.  KDE 3 should 
have been maintained longer EVEN IF KDE 4 was going to replace KDE 3.  
People on the Gentoo lists mentioned the same thing.  It's not a drop in 
replacement or a upgrade.  It's a whole new thing.  It's not a "new" 
thing like M$ claims theirs to be either.  Their new thing sucks with a 
new shine on the front.  lol

I sincerely hope KDE does a better job with KDE 5.  I have read where 
several people have switched away form KDE because of the way this was 
done.  KDE 3 was dropped before KDE 4 was even off to a good stable 
start.  At least that is my opinion anyway.  For me, KDE 4 is still not
