One of the user in our community once told me the same thing.  He did not turn 
on any animation or desktop effect, and used the same resolution as in KDE3.  
He found that KDE4 was *actually* slower than KDE3.

For me it is also a true statement.  Especially in an old system which KDE3 
could run smoothly, KDE4 would be a lot slower.  It's luck that my boss agreed 
to let me change my daily work PC to a dual core Intel and with 1GB memory, 
and now the speed of KDE4 is OK to me, although animation is still not very 
smooth.  I'm just wondering why KDE4 is slower than KDE3.  I guess that KDE4 
may need more effort to fine tune its performance, since it changed a lot due 
to changing the whole framework.

Anyway, I'm in love with KDE 4.1, and I appreciate the developers a lot.
