Marc Espie (espie@) has put in a port of KDE 4, and I wrote down my initial impressions based on a few days of using it as my desktop. While KDE 4 is not yet ready for prime time, it is certainly becoming usable.From the article...
So why do I say "almost ready for prime time"? First, I'm seeing some instability - Plasma disappears every so often and has to be restarted, for example, or kwin crashes and gets restarted - but these might be because the KDE developers are only coding for Linux, not for portability (though parts of KDE4 - not including Plasma - can also run on MS-Windows and Mac OS). However, more significant is that the system just doesn't feel "finished". Many of the optimizations and features (especially configuration) that we took for granted in 3.5 are not in 4.0 yet.
