I just installed it on squeeze last night so I haven't had much of a chance to
use it yet but it looks good to me. Haven't noticed anything in the way of a
trade-off. Everything I use seems to be here, k3b, krusader, amarok, kid3,
The only difference I have noted so far is that I can't right click the
message and folder view areas of kmail to change the columns, and the "K" in
kde in the logon splash is changed to a "T" for trinity I guess. Functionally
it seems to be much the same as kde 3.5.? always has. I'm impressed.

That was my plan too.. may not be needed anymore. You'll have to take a look
for yourself though.. :)
