Exactly.  Fedora made the change straight away - but you'd expect that.  
Mandriva offered both, first with KDE3 as the default, then with KDE4 as the 
default.  In both cases you were free to choose.

I use CentOS on my server, which has been running 5.x for some time - ISTR 
that we are now on 5.3.  I can confirm that it uses KDE3 - e.g. 

As I have said many times, if you really want to stay with 3.5, the enterprise 
distros still have it.
