Same here.
I delayed trying KDE4 since my old box was too old; as soon as I got a 
new one, I tried it.

I too fear I'll have to move on sooner or later, the last bug being 
Kuickshow not working with EXA acceleration (which is the only one 
supported by my new GPU's driver).

However, after trying KDE4, I think I'll start looking into Gnome or 
XFCE or whatever, before taking a decision.

I really hope KDE4 will improve in the meanwhile, so maybe I can check 
it out again.

BTW, one thing I absolutely won't live with is the lack of keyboard 
shortcuts: in KDE3 I run plain Konsole with "Windows-K" and with 
"Windows-R" I start a root console.
This doesn't seem to be possible on KDE4, and no, a plasmoid on the 
desktop with a session menu is NOT the same thing.
