I would be willing to bet that baring unforeseen catastrophes KDE 3.x 
will still run twenty years from now. I have one old laptop that still 
has DOS 6.2/Windows 3.1 and works just great. My old TRS80, TI-99-4A and 
CoCo still work also.

Treat all stressful situations like a dog does.
If you can't eat it or play with it, 
just pee on it and walk away
