I suppose we all have our favorite parts of KDE. For me it's Quanta. For 
whatever reason the devs at wherever have pretty much decided it was not 
worth the effort to bring it along with KDE 4.x. There is one person 
trying to bring it along and I hope someday he manages to do it.

Why they decided to kill off Quanta is beyond me, well maybe "kill off" 
is a bit of an over statement, but it is crippled very badly.
