KDE 4.0 was released on schedule in January.  KDE 4.1 is still on track
for July.

Most Fedora and Ubuntu releases are on time.  Which distro do you use?

Yes, I answered your questions.

We installed F9 on test boxes.  F9 is not deployable because of KDE 4.
We did not put F9 on any production boxes.

Please see the subject of this thread.  The question is not whether
people were surprised by KDE 4.  Everyone knows KDE 4 will take a
while before it's useful.  Even Aaron is disappointed that critical
functionality missed not only 4.0 but also 4.1.

The question is whether Fedora would provide a migration path by
supporting KDE 3.5 in F10.  And the answer was a resounding "this
is too difficult so go use another distro".
