I agree. I may not be the average user. Heck! i am not the average user and 
absolutely love KDE4. And what i know is that the people that i have 
introduced to Linux lately, i did so with kde4. First, simply because i use 
kde4 on a daily basis and it would be easiest for me to help them out *should* 
they have any issues. The only issues that any of them have had are issues 
mostly related to the fact that they have to use other programs than they were 
used to on windows and things more fundamental like how to install certain 
programs that they have heard so much about.

Speaking for KDE in particular, I later got them using other computers 
occasionally with were loaded with other DE include kde 3.5. They never liked 
it! Most of these people now use linux and kde4 exclusively.

I know that what i say above is not of much use here. But i just can't help 
think that sometimes the problem is between the chair and the screen.
