This is of course a personal reflection but I don't see why the choice
should be either KDE 3.5.10 or Plasma5. What is wrong with the stable
14.10 KDE4 version?

Being *buntu, I use a few PPA to get the latest LibreOffice, Mesa and
so on. I use an older kernel via the mainline PPA as it works better
for my hardware (I also have 4.0 kernel but don't use it, something
bugs up with my hybrid Intel/AMD gpu). But reverting to 3.5.10?? Why?

Kind regards,
