KDE3 was stable and efficient, didn't need to be abandoned to (re)create KDE4
from scratch. In openSUSE, KDE3 remains available, though a little lighter for
having lost most maintainers and a few packages. TDE, the KDE3 fork, hasn't lost
any of what made KDE3 nice and stable, while acquiring a few improvements to
match morphing technology, keeping stability, avoiding useless bloat, and not
dumbing down its UI.
