I would very much like to know what regressions you find in KDE 4
compared to KDE 3, in particular accessibility and usability issues
such as keyboard shortcuts.

Joe, if you would mention the E[16|17] features that you prefer, I
would very much like to file feature requests for KDE. I have been
meaning to try that desktop for the longest time but I cannot find the
time to dedicate to it the time that it deserves (I have a handicap
that KDE handles nicely, but E16 did not. I do not know about E17
though.). Thanks!
