Because KDE3 is final, i.e. a dead-end and because of all the advantages
KDE4 has, e.g. a very flexible desktop that kde3 does not provide.

But, KDE 3 is a mature, featureful desktop environment in it's own right
and it all works. KDE 4.0 and 4.1 are broken, experimental development
versions that are missing a lot of *expected* features and, have a
significantly higher crash rate.

Says who? All people I know, do not have those problems. Maybe it is a
personal thing.

KDE 3 should have been the default until KDE 4 was really ready for
brand-new Linux users. Specifically, those that don't want to take part in
experimentation and development, but rather be handed a finished[1]
product. Yes, KDE 4 should have been available but *not* the default.

KDE4 is better already and the future, hence it is the default choice. Read
the mail by the guy who installed it for a new-to-linux-user.
