this is entirely counter-productive...those who maintain the packages
made the decision to go to KDE-4 and those of use who want to use KDE on
Fedora, will either stay on Fedora 8 or live with KDE-4 on Fedora 9.

KDE is committed to KDE-4 and Fedora-KDE packagers are going with the
flow. There is no future in KDE-3.5.x, only the past.

Things have improved since the original release and the Live-CD probably
doesn't approximate the current experience. It's suitable for my usage.

Please don't get into this concept of blaming users because the packages
made the decision to go to KDE-4 and we all have to deal with it. It's
not a big thing but it's enough to cause me to delay rolling out
Fedora-9 to a network of KDE users for now because of their expectations
and level of skills has them putting files on the Desktop which is
presently dead space on KDE.
