well, that's your opinion.
for me, kde4 _is_ now (from 4.3.x on) a viable replacement, except some not-
yet-ported (or not mature) applications (quanta, koffice), but one can still 
run their kde3 versions in kde4 without major trouble.
what bugs me more, is that sooner or later, when kde3 will be abandoned by 
even those distros still supporting it (e.g. debian lenny),
those who still use older hardware, will have to dump that or use something 
else than kde, which is a shame, IMHO.
and no, I'm not speaking of aging 486's with 32 MB RAM :)
- kde4 is e.g. totally unusable on my 2.2 GHz AMD duron (1 GB RAM, sis 
graphics), and I think there are still lots of comparable pc's out there.
dumping them all because they can't run a state-of-the-art desktop is just the 
well known M$ way of 'progress'.
