The same old diskussion, and it will not lead to a solution. As neither KDE 
nor TDE or any other DE offers a test suit the user is up to his/her personal 
impression.
Some months ago (was it last year? time flyes ...) you suggested tde to switch 
to kwin4 and drop kwin3.5. Well, I tried it and posted my results. It's like 
walking in tar. Just install TDE, change the WM to kwin4 and start working. 
You could do as I did, set up 2 identical maschines next to each other (I'd 
suggest you use Intel or Nvidia gc - X61 in my case) and make a one by one 
comparsion.

And Nokia is still the rising star of smartphone universe ;-)
