what functionality did KDE4 miss?
Things improved heavily throughout KDE4 lifecycle especially after the
switch to baloo.
I found KDE4 by 4.14.xx (with the patched akonadi) to be as perfect as
a desktop can be (It ranked up there with XPSP3). I used to have weeks
of uptime without memory increases or crashes or anything. The system
resources footprint was minimal too.
