So far KDE 4.x that I have seen has been sluggish and clumsy to use.
And one of the most useful parts of the KDE Suite, Quanta Plus, has
not been rewritten to match. So I use XFCE, after many years of using
KDE. I have to have Qt 4 available because apps are moving to it. As
for the rest, fugeddaboudit.
If/when the eye candy gets out of the way and KDE becomes a
workmanlike program launcher again I may revisit again. As of now I am
happy to just say no.
