Hello, [ All those questions are FAQ and have already been answered times ] 2009 m.

In short, KDE 3 desktop will be gone from sid/squeeze as soon as possible, only KDE3 Libs and stripped down KDE 3 base will remain as well as those 3rd party KDE 3 applications which are still useful and don't have KDE 4 counterparts. > KDE4 is really great and many users would for sure be happy to see and test > it.

However, I think KDE 4 will not migrate to testing any time soon (2-4 months) but it will be available in sid really soon. So squeeze is going to be still KDE 3 based for some time. > The best solution for many of us would be to have a possibility of > switching between KDE3 and KDE4 just like it now works for KDE3 and > Gnome. No. KDE 4 was packaged to be not co-installable with KDE 3 desktop from the start. Co-installability is not supported upstream and hacking around would be painful and not worth it. What is more, nobody of Debian Qt/KDE team is really interested in KDE 3 anymore... > It would be great if KDE applications could come in two versions as > well, as their Qt4 ports often lack important functions the previous > versions had. No, it is not going to happen (counterproductive and confusing). You will have to install/pin an older version from lenny if you really want it. Basically, KDE 3 is going to RIP (which it has deserved over all those years), now it's time to break and be annoyed by >= KDE 4.2! -- Modestas Vainius <firstname.lastname@example.org>
