You should rather bet that there will be unforeseen catastrophes.
Engineers count on known unknowns and on unknown unknowns. KDE 3 is
unmaintained, and will be as dangerous and useless as Windows 3.1 is
today. Your Win 3.1 machine has no web browser, does not play mp3 or
divx files, does not run Solidworks, and does not run Office.
