*Some distributors* pushed KDE 4.few down users' throats. RHEL 5 and
its clones use KDE 3.5.4, and are still supported. Debian made no
stable release with KDE4 versions prior than 4.4, and 3.5.9-containing
Lenny was supported until last month. Slackware stills provides some
security patches for Slackware 8.1, which is old enough to have been
released KDE 3.0.

Count me on them, I feel like I'm more productive with KDE4 than
everything else (but not by a wide margin compared to KDE3/Trinity).
I'm happy as long as I have the very extensive support KDE has for
keyboard shortcuts.
