Oh come on!  Please, do not answer things like that.  There are so many different people 
on Earth and we all have so many different choices & reasons for doing things or not doing 

I tried KDE4 for a few weeks, maybe 2 months.  And it was just too bad for my needs. 
Before using it, I thought about somethings like "KDE4 must be KDE3 with more glossy 
graphics rendering and *upgraded packages*", and I also thought I could disable almost of 
the graphics stuff, but, no.  KDE4 missis some basic options KDE3 had, and KDE3 had them 
for good reasons (I just think about alt-f5 shortcut (show all windows list) that is no 
more available in KDE4 *if* you don't own powerful 3D graphics card).

Then, I found Trinity, installed it and was sooooooooooooo happy!  I kept some KDE4 apps 
for a while (kpdf, amarok2, etc.) but it was kind of a mess.  So I finally removed all of 
them and get back to my beloved "KDE3 desktop".  Just what I wanted while upgrading to 
Debian Squeeze.

BTW, re-thank you so much for doing Trinity!
