I have a question regarding really old computers. I have KDE 1 installed on a 
2 laptops with 16 and 32 MB RAM respectively (SuSE 6.2 CD-ROM). They work 
fine (well, the second one, anyway...) and obviously there is no chance of 
upgrading to KDE 3. Now if I reinstall some of the old KDE packages from a 
server still having this old distribution, will somebody have fixed some bugs 
but have left the packages otherwise the same? In other words, is it a policy 
with KDE to improve old packages when bugs become known, or they left exactly 
as they were for historic reasons?

On the other end, BTW, on my main 400MHz PC with 250MB RAM, KDE 3.2.2 runs 
much better than 3.1 did in spite of the extras! 3 cheers for the KDE
