I use KDE from official repos for Fedora 9.
I don't have time to install and test the 4.2beta2 version, because I
don't have skills to do it. 
I don't work very well with desktops.
I prefere KDE only because I ever used it. Maybe I will like Gnome if I
will start to use it.

Changing from kde3 to kde4 maybe could be the right moment to switch to
gnome, because kde4 is very different from the kde3 but I will stay on

If I love evolution can I use it on KDE? I used it on KDE for years, why
I have to switch to gnome now?

And if I love gimp, I have to switch to gnome?
And if after I love ktorrent or sone k* I have to switch to KDE?

So, it's better to have 2 desktop session and switch from one to the
other simply clicking ctrl-alt-F6 and clicking ctrl-alt-F7 for example?
I don't understand this approach... I like linux because it permit me to
choise between desktops, between application.
Now I think that this is not so true like in the past.

I'm involved in some other QA on the open source, so I know that this is
a good approach to the problem, but before to open a bug I will know if
I'm the only one that has the problem, or is a choice.

That's true, but you can't do things that you done in the past
