I'm sticking with KDE 3.5 at least until things are working in KDE 4.  I 
do agree tho that even my machine is a bit slower than I would like.  
KDE 4 needs a fast machine to work and respond the way KDE 3.5 does. 

I currently have a AMD 2500+ CPU with 2Gbs of ram.  I have the extra ram 
mostly because I run Gentoo and compile a lot plus I do some work with 
images.  I like to take panoramic pictures.  As a general rule, I only 
use about 250Mbs.  If I'm on youtube, that changes pretty quick.  The 
browser uses a lot then.  Gimp and Hugin can use a lot to tho. 

I'm hoping KDE 4 will get better real soon so we can all use it.  Maybe 
it will get faster to but I doubt that.
