Here are my 2c worth.

I am using openSUSE 11.2 RC2 on my Laptop. In terms of the Laptop it actually 
is a significant improvement to 11.1.

Yes you are right, KDE 3.5 has been dropped from the DVD. But all is available 
through the KDE repo's.When you use MS Office and cxoffice, you most likely 
will need KDE3.5 base and some other KDE 3.5 packages. Otherwise you cannot 
print to PDF directly.  Or at least I have not found a way or I am missing 

As Okular has some printing issues, at my end, especially pdfs created from 
CAD programs, it always good being able to resort back to KPDF. It actually is 
a live saver at times. Print outs form Okular are a disgrace at times. 

Kuickshow is also and old favorite of mine. Still available in the KDE 3.5 

While I mostly use KDE 4.3.2, I still need to resort back to KDE 3.5.10 apps 
at times. Otherwise I would not be able to work/print properly.
