Interesting.  I shunned KDE 4 until the current 4.3, which I find I am 
starting to like.  I am running it on newer hardware than you are, but it 
actually seems faster than KDE 3.5 was on this hardware.  Perhaps it is tuned 
to the newer dual core systems in ways that KDE 3.5 was not.

The beauty of rapid updates in open source software seems to have a downside 
in this regard.  One can take a computer built for win XP and use it with that 
OS for years.  While possible with Linux, the push is for frequent upgrades.  
While most Linux upgrades are much more resource efficient compared to their 
proprietary counterparts.  There are limits to this efficiency.
