Regarding my earlier comments on whether anyone has tried KDE4 recemtly, I
downloaded a KDE 4.9 testing LiveCD with OpenSUSE 12.1.  While the boot
sequence was slow and the default graphics are as bad as I remembered, the
killer was that the entire virtual machine locked up as soon as I clicked
the Kicker menu icon.  I think I'll wait until OpenSUSE officially
releases a LiveCD with KDE 4.9 before trying again. :-)
