        This. I started my Linux adventure with KDE3. It's pretty much perfect. I have lxpanel hacked up to be like KDE3 kicker (large icon launchers, next to them a two-row taskbar, followed by the systray and clock).

        Maybe it'll be KDE3's turn next year...

          Nice! Funnily enough I was thinking of trying to compile the old NCSA Mosaic source code on modern Linux this Christmas, for the fun of it. Maybe I could try this as well and build a sort of software museum hereā€¦ :P

              I so miss KDE 3, I started out on Linux with Suse Professional and KDE 3 then Mandrake with KDE 3 too. To me KDE has been shyte since the inception of version 4!

                I guess it should be super fast and snappy on modern GHz hardware, no? ;-)

                    I remember using it in Mandrake centuries ago. Gnome at that time was just a joke. I mean, even more than these days.
