There are features that haven't made it to kde4 such as koffice. I added 
OpenOffice but that can be a long compile. One of my favorite sites crashes 
konqueror, which wasn't a problem on kde3. I left my slower machine, which I 
use for e-mail, and web browsing running kde3 and play with kde4 on my system 
that can do a portupgrade -pfR kde4 in 7 hours and build OO in less than 2 
hours. It is running kde-4.3 now and it has been recursively rebuilt. The 
browser crash is still there. I can use the packages of common ports to 
update the slower machine. They are on a 4-port kvm and it is too easy to 
simply use the machine that works the best.
