I have a 500Mhz  laptop with 128mb memory and kedit launches in 1 second, 
kwrite in 2. I think you have some serious configuration problems, probably 
to do with your upgrade. To address the actual point of your query, kedit is 
still present in a default 3.3 menu on my system. I suspect something has 
gone a little screwy with your system.
