Hi Daniel,

All my ports are uptodate (from CVS of November 3). Maybe your question
is, why I use KDE3 and not KDE4?

The EeePC has only a 900 MHz CPU and around 16 GByte disk. But even on
my 'real' laptop I run KDE3. I think KDE4 does not provide better
usability and in general hunts in the wrong direction. Most of my work I
do in (x)terminals and I just need something to start other X11
applications. KDE3 fits my needs.
