To make an analogy: KDE 4 is a house whose main structure is now standing, which is livable, but which still needs a lot of finishing touches to make it into the fantastic house it will eventually be. KDE 3 on the other hand is a house with a lesser (though still very nice) structure, but that has been lived in long enough to have reached it's full potential with all of the rough edges smoothed over > I think the upstream KDE team was quite premature in calling it stable > given some relatively basic stuff like configuring the panel are still > missing. In Free Software the mantra is "release early, release often" KDE4 is now at a point where: - the basic frameworks are in place - what's there works well enough for daily use So releasing now is IMHO a Good Thing But yes, as it stands KDE3 is still the more comfortable house => if you expect KDE4 to mach the comfort of KDE3 it's to early to switch, => if you're content with works but needs refinement, and are willing to help (even if only by helping to find bugs and reporting them) now is a good time to switch. -- Cheers, cobaco (aka Bart Cornelis)
