 that's precisely why i recommend it for my clients, as it is *not*
modified / enhanced / feature-upgraded and so on.  my clients are
*specifically* used to KDE 3.5 and it would be an unmitigated disaster
for it to be "upgraded".

 forums for software development typically result in it being swamped
by AOL-style "metoo" postings... they're suitable for shallow
"end-user" conversations and utterly insane for technical development.
