ok, here's my quotes:
TDE stands in direct relationship to kde3 with respect to:

-	speed/responsiveness even on older hardware
-	configurability
-	simplicity (this means: all data and configurations is in 
human-readable/writable text files, easy to maintain and backup)
-	complete set of well integrated applications for most day-to-day tasks

hence, with kde3 beeing dead, TDE is the only remaining chance to keep this 
heritage alive in recent linux distros.

there is more, of course, but these are the main advantages for me.

downside: konqueror as a web browser is now rather limited, esp. with respect 
to javascript/ajax.
nevertheless, it works still quite well with most websites (even flash) and 
for those where it doesn't, I use something else (e.g. chromium).


oh, not to forget: I really like koffice 1.6.3 - fast and simple, reads/writes 
odf format, no need for more 'features' here :)
and of course quanta+ - still the best web editor/php dev tool ...
