Actually, no. What is your point? I got the point of the others, those 
who like stable and those who like new and those who dream to have both. 
You want stable and don't like change, that's perfectly fine but I don't 
see why you should call others masochistic or pathetic because they have 
a different opinion or different wishes. You are not being forced out of 
the current 3.x KDE, I personally will keep an 8.04 dvd around just in 
case. If the bugs bug you (bad pun...), file bug reports, ask the 
developers (nicely... screaming "immediately" and "pathetic" and 
"understand the point?" won't help), or grab the code and a compiler. 
It's not easy and simple, but neither is freedom.
