When I used the phrase (in quotes) "experienced user" it
was euphemistic for older user. I am sure that KDE4 is
great for some people. I prefer the arrangement and scheme
of the 3.5x panel.

KDE describes the choice as follows:

	"KDE 4.1 (recommended for early-adopting users)"

	"KDE 3.5 is the more mature version of KDE. For more
	conservative users, this is the recommended version
	of KDE."

I guess that I am in the latter group. Similar
conversations are going on in just about every distro
community; More so, when there is an underlying corporate
sponsor. The general consensus SEEMS to be that
distributions are compelling the switch earlier than might
be desirable. At some point 3.5 will be deprecated, We're
not there yet. Of course, that's JMO. 

The greater issue might be how the Fedora team is arriving
at these decisions and whether or not there is an effort to
create consensus.
