And there are a multitude of specific examples where kde4 is better.
This is certainly not constructive feedback. Sigh, if you like kde3,
fine, stick with Fedora 8.
It's about choice, NOT what is better about KDE4 its more about what
is MISSING! If you can't understand that some users work in a specific
way or need to work in a specific way then.....
There could be other reason why I want or might even need Fedora 9, but
that is my choice. I would like a choice at least better KDE3.5 and KDE
4.x until 4.x has all the features of 3.5.

Please read the FAQ again. I would *love* to be able to provide just
that, and asked developers point-blank if this is something
possible(1) or supported. Answer was no.
(1) without horrible hacks or FHS violations.
Hmmm.... The FAQ provide some information, but not exactly what I was
asking. What I really read was, that there was not enough resources
to provide both KDE3.5 and KDE4.0 with ONLY one installed at a time.
I didn't ask to have both kde4 & kde3 installed at the same time. Yes,
there will always be ways to shoot yourself in the foot.
I'll consider this dead since there was a conscious decision to force
this issue. I'll look at other distros or methods or means to obtain
the features I need. so long...
