Nice to hear that it is working well for other people, too.

I'd also like to give my thanks to the Fedora KDE maintainers. Ever
since Fedora 9 was released with KDE 4.0.x, I have considered Fedora's
KDE 4 implementation the best there is available. Of course there were
problems, especially with the 4.0 series, but now that we have the
well working and feature rich KDE 4.2, backported to stable releases,
I think the trouble has really paid off.

It seems probable that the current situation wouldn't be as good as it
is now if Fedora hadn't adopted KDE 4.0 as early as it did. Including
KDE 4.0 in Fedora 9 is one of the most visible Fedora decisions for
me. It has encouraged me to use and discover KDE 4, as well as ensured
that I could do that on Fedora and not some other distribution.

Thanks, all the people who have made this possible.
