I ain't can't let go KDE3. Re-read my post, please?
And yes, I've checked razor-qt. It sure is interesting. Memory footprint's low too, but still not that user friendly.
I didn't misunderstand anything. One constant I always find in comments regarding KDE 4 is always the same folks who bitch and moan that KDE 4 is slow; it's a resource hog; it's glitchy. These are CLEARLY people who can't let go of the fact that KDE 3.x is over and haven't actually used (as in every day) a recent KDE version post 4.2. They repeat this tired old FUD time and time again and frankly there's no merit to these claims. I agree with Lemur. I've been using KDE 4.7.x on a chintzy little netbook and it runs circles about the anemic Windows 7 Starter that shipped with the netbook with full 3D accelerated desktop effects enabled and all my standard programs. It's time to get over it already.
