Apps should not fail after an upgrade. KDE 3 apps are provided when 
there is a KDE 4 equivalent not yet available.

A number of core configuration details has changed so I expect some. If 
you have time, do a test upgrade to Fedora 9 alpha or rawhide and 
provide some feedback via fedora-test list. That should help the 
developers involved fix any issues that crop up.
