It's not. However, I SUSPECT that there might be more
people who want KDE-3.5 than Sugar. It's worth exploring.
It could be just me but I don't think so due to discussions
that I have seen on other forums. My impression is that
there is a fairly sizable group of 3.5x users who won't
change to 4.

Not really IIRC. Moreover, this is the first KDE release
since then without an upgrade path. New releases have added
features and horsepower but have been consistent in
approach.

That makes sense until you have a bunch of problems with a
new installation and need to figure out how to make the
edit to log into a UI as boot. It's not up to Fedora to
protect me from my own stupidity - that would be a losing
proposition from the outset ;-)
