As I see it, KDE4 fell in the Vista trap.  I tried KDE4 and was showered with 
eye candy effects, some of which couldn't even be disabled.  Also, quite a 
few features I used in KDE3 were missing from KDE4.

I never understood the need for transparent windows.  If you're working in a 
window you want to concentrate on its contents, not on stuff that's happening 
beneath it.  It breaks the flow.  I think it's indicative of the 
ritalin-generation of teens who can't concentrate for two minutes and need to 
constantly tweet about nonsense.  Geez, I'm getting old ;-)

In my time, we didn't have color screens.  We had machine code on the bare 
metal, and a USER PORT to hook up your hardware.
