    Its slow as hell, consume too manny resources, and have a poor performance, compared with kde3.5, but kde3.5 has a lot of improovments to make in that area too.. still I think its bether resource targeted for a desktop..

    KDE4 was the inpiration of 'windows vista', or 'LongHorn' at the time..no way, I will get a Desktop sow sluggish
    Indeed KDE 3.5 itself was much slower than KDE 1 or 2. KDE 1 and I believe 2 as well run fine on ancient 40Mhz unaccelerated machines and provided most of the features that KDE provides today UI wise.

      Youngsters and their fancy "desktops". Give me Korn shell any day - it runs, like, 200000% faster than KDE 1, and has less bugs to boot!

        Good morning all of you. I am from India and a fresh phoronix user(now it is 9.30 AM in India).
        I have installed Q4OS Linux 2.7 in my old pc with 1.8 GHz core 2duo processor and1GB RAM. It only consumes about 300 MB RAM and smoothly runs basic applications like Firefox/Chrome, VLC, Libreoffcie etc. No lags whatsoever when using these. I also configured a LTSP server (using LTSP Manager) for 5 clients with Q4OS in a core2 duo 3 GHz/4GB computer and the setup is working very well. No performance issues since 6 months.
        I think TDE is very much suitable for old computers as well as who wants a light functional system.

          I thought that issues were caused by other system packages like ca-certificates or something else providing the actual TLS layer. I mean HTTPS per-se didn't change.

            I think you really overestimate how little computing power "typical modern smartphones" have.
            At most they have better hardware acceleration for media files, and are running really light applications from RAM

                KDE 3.5, was the last KDE desktop I used. I've tried the newer KDE versions, but they were too unstable / buggy in my opinion. After I switched to XFCE, and never looked back regarding stability and it does exactly what I need. Only a new release every 3 - 4 years, but that's perfect for me. It's nice to see there's still bring worked on a KDE 3.5 fork though. Perhaps I'll even give it a try : )
                Unrelated - but how's retirement treating you?

                  In my opinion, only Xfce and, hopefully, Lxqt are the only DE valid nowadays. But, the only missing thing in the Linux world is a modern, free, really indipendent and stable gui library. Linux (distros) will never be indipendent and free unless one solution (for the missed gui library) will be adopted. I know it is a hard work, but I think it is necessary.

                      You right,
                      Our community is always trying to design a new wheel, I still have the hope to see kde2 in modern hardware..
