KDE Since the stream of news is still pretty much dry, I figured I'd throw in something I've been meaning to talk about for a while now, but really didn't dare to: KDE4's performance. Since experiences with KDE4 seem to widely differ between people, it might be a good idea if we, together, can find a common cause among those of us having problems.

Still KDE 3.5 here

I'm still using KDE 3.5 here. KDE 4 was just slower than 3. Once KDE 4 reaches the performance of 3 I plan to switch.
I understand the newer versions should offer significant performance improvements. Is this really not the case?

I too have been holding with KDE 3.5 I have been using KDE since v 1 and have always embraced the new versions. Upon the release of 4.0 the lack of features that I was used to in 3.5x had me downgrading to Mandriva 2008.1. I have tried every new release of KDE 4.x and still do not wish to convert yet. Even KDE 4.3 still is not developed enough in my opinion. Can you autohide the panel yet? Because if you can then I cannot find out how. I just don't see 4.3 as a complete DE yet. Until the feature set that is present in KDE 3.5 is implemented in 4.3 I do not think I will be switching.

Yes, and it's not even hard. Right click on the panel and chose 'Panel Options'->'panel settings'(If it's locked, obviously you need to unlock it). In the configuration select 'more settings' and there select 'auto hide'.

Not much different from any menu driven interface in use, so it seem you have not tried to find it very hard.
