Using KDE 3 would probably be your best bet. KDE 4 is to a large degree
a rewrite of big parts of KDE 3. Some components are entirely missing
from KDE 4, such as the KDE-PIM suite. The KDE project received some
criticism for calling the 4.0 release a final release, but they have
made it clear that KDE 4 is a long term project, and it will probably be
another 2 Ubuntu releases or so before KDE 4 will be anywhere close to
KDE 3. Aparently KDE 4.1 fixes a large amount of issues that users
experienced in KDE 4.0.
