I think FreeBSD is great, but my advice to "upgrade" to FreeBSD was meant to 
be tounge-in-cheek.  However, my advice to upgrade X and KDE both is entirely 
serious.  Unless you have a pretty unusual situation (custom KDE apps, for 
example), KDE3 is unlikely to cause any great trouble and it's way more 

But again, your problems are more likely with X than with KDE, so the better 
part of caution would be to upgrade X and leave KDE alone.

Unless you have some reason to particularly suspect KDE as the culprit - ?
