It's about choice, NOT what is better about KDE4 its more about what
is MISSING! If you can't understand that some users work in a specific
way or need to work in a specific way then..... 

There could be other reason why I want or might even need Fedora 9, but
that is my choice. I would like a choice at least better KDE3.5 and KDE
4.x until 4.x has all the features of 3.5.

Hmmm.... The FAQ provide some information, but not exactly what I was
asking.  What I really read was, that there was not enough resources
to provide both KDE3.5 and KDE4.0 with ONLY one installed at a time.
I didn't ask to have both kde4 & kde3 installed at the same time.  Yes,
there will always be ways to shoot yourself in the foot.

I'll consider this dead since there was a conscious decision to force
this issue.  I'll look at other distros or methods or means to obtain
the features I need. so long...
