Gnome As most of you will know, the GNOME team is hard at work on GNOME 3.0, the first major overhaul of the platform since 2002. The release of GNOME 3.0 was originally planned for March 2010, but it has now been pushed back for six months to September 2010.

development on the KDE3 branch effectively dead as soon as 4.0 hit.

Next time, try harder to come up with a convincing lie. KDE 3.5.10 was released one month after KDE 4.1.0: http://kde.org/announcements/announce-3.5.10.php
KDE 3.5 still receives bugfixes. The last one is just eight days old: http://websvn.kde.org/branches/KDE/3.5/
The KDE 3.5-based "Enterprise" branch of KMail and the other PIM apps is still in very active development with the last bugfix less than one day old: http://websvn.kde.org/branches/kdepim/enterprise/

Maintenance mode life support hardly constitutes active development. It may be less buggy, but it's still stuck in 2007

The only aspect bad about early KDE 4 releases was Plasma. All the apps have always been better than the KDE 3 counterparts.
I've used the KDE 3 Workspace with KDE 4 apps for quite some time.
