Yet another example of the "wait for the first update" rule when  
wanting something new ;)  Like many, I avoid any software that is  
version x.0; I usually wait for x.1 before installing if it's anything  
I rely on.  I have a parallel installation of KDE 3.5 and 4.0 on my  
Kubuntu workstation in the office, but only "dabble" in KDE4.  I still  
rely on the tried and trusted KDE 3.5 for all my work duties.  Having  
said that though, what I've seen of KDE4 is great, just not quite all  
there yet (a lot of icons and button images are missing for one).

Besides, I spent a fair bit of time getting beryl+superkaramba+kde 3.5  
all singing and dancing in unison, I don't want to go through all that  
again on KDE4 :)
