Please be productive and explain what you can do with KDE3 that you
can't do with KDE4.

I take this on the spirit of non flame war, but as an honest question.

For me, the design of kde4 is too bloated, I simply can not handle it intuitively. Previously I used both kde and gnome. With the arrival of kde4, I stopped using it. I can't use gnome 3 either, so I turned to xfce.

This is simply a fact for me, and others. No flames, please.

But I still use some applications from kde that I like a lot.

For example I like amarok, but it uses lots of cpu (and my machine is powerful). I also use k3b. Magnific app.

But there are two kde3 applications I need that have not been ported. One is kbabel, the other is rekall. The first has an incomplete successor (lokalize), the second has been abandoned. I'll keep using the old apps while they remain available, so a big thankyou to Ilya.
