The day when KDE 3 will no longer be viable is getting closer every
day. Please tell me what problems you are having with KDE 4.3 so that
we can get them fixed. KDE 3 is great because it is mature,
configurable, and feature-laden without being bloated. I do not want
to see that go to waste! It is the KDE 3 holdouts who have the
attention to detail to distinguish the "little things" that make KDE 3
so great that are currently lacking in the KDE 4 branch.

Note that KDE 4.3 really solves most of the issues for me and most
other people that I deal with. In fact, the features is adds over KDE
3 were enough to get me to switch. So please try KDE 4.3 and
_let_me_know_ what does not work for you so that we can file bugs. I
want to know about missing features, unintuitiveness, bugs,
regressions, anything. You _will_ need to relearn some minor things as
KDE 4 is a rewrite of KDE, not a Qt4 port of KDE 3, however let's get
the major issues fixed.

Thanks. KDE really needs the picky, stubborn KDE 3 users to push the
devs (who might not have the same attention to detail as us) in the
right direction. I'm here to bridge the gap between us (the users) and
the devs.

Ok........pass on that KDE 4.3 version of KNetworkmanager won't work,
with most wifi NATIVE to Linux chipsets, if the access point is
hidden......it still needs work!

Thanks,

Fred
