I jumped on the KDE4 train a week ago and I must say that KDE4 is ready for
daily use. I used KDE a quite long time some years ago but leave it for XFCE4
because KDE3.x was slow. But KDE4 respond faster than XFCE4 and I like it that
much that I installed a new Debian Sid system with only KDE4 (plus Gimp and
its dependencies). Konqueror is a little buggy which make it quite useless on
some sites, therefor I had Iceweasel installed to.
KDE4 work great for me and the only serious drawback can be if you need some
of the applications that is not KDE4 ready yet. But I can live without them...
I found a few more applications in the Kubuntu repository and some plasmoids
KDE4 is definite a milestone in the Linux-world! It's great!
