Please tell me what is missing for you. I will address those that you
mention below, and I would appreciate if you mention others that you
think of. Thanks.

What did the system kioslave do? I don't have KDE 3 here to test.

Fixed in KDE 4.4 or 4.5.
Being ported, and not a core KDE app in any case.

So long as you are not loading Qt3 libraries in addition to the Qt4
libraries, KDE 4 is lighter on RAM than KDE 3. You can really feel it,

It is subjective. You can generally configure KDE 4 to look like KDE 3.

You're not married, are you? :) That stuff never stops changing!

Actually, spatial organization is very useful as it is most natural
for humans. Users who have shied away from multiple desktops love it.

Okular was my reason for switching, and that's saying a lot as KPDF
was great. Kate is as it was for the most part, other that the new
search-replace dialogue (that I don't like) and VIM mode (that I
love). Kopete has Skype integration (needs Skype installed, though). I
really like having different folders shown on the desktop.
Nothing really compelling, but then again KDE 3 did not have any one
really compelling feature. It's the sum of the parts.

Your thoughts are appreciated, and they are valuable. I _want_ to know
what keeps you on KDE 3, so that I can get it fixed in KDE 4.
