I would be. And do we not mean Squeeze? Lenny has KDE 3.5.10.

I have looked at all those, in addition to KDE 4 and Gnome. None appeals to
me. Each has something that I strongly dislike or does not have something
that I like and use a lot. I would love to be able to upgrade to Squeeze if
new(er) hardware dictates, but keep KDE 3.5. But I am not even almost
tempted to go over to the dark side!
I am, however, very sad that KDE 3.5, which I regard as the pinnacle of DE's,
is being laid to rest.
