"Much more applications".  Curious then that the (large) Trinity userbase
has not run into issues due to missing applications in Trinity itself.

I submit that KDE:KDE3 is likely chock full of practically useless,
stagnant applications that very few people even knew existed back when
KDE3 was in use.

What are you doing to keep KDE3 up to date?  What will you do when Qt3
finally is completely useless/uncompilable on modern desktops?  How are
you improving KDE3 by adding new features?  From what I can tell the
KDE:KDE3 maintainers are content to maintain a codebase that is not only
cluttered, but is slowly growing stale and irrelevant, just so that they
can claim to have "more appliations", which in and of itself is of dubious

Not to be rude, but I have not seen much factual information from you,
just a lot of unsubstantiated and/or dubious claims.  Please correct me if
I am wrong.
