A major "problem" with eralier versions of KDE was the fact that it was waaaaay too much screen estate swalllowed to be usable on 1024x600 screens. It'll be interesting to see how this new Netbook Interface handles it.

That is not true! I have been using Kubuntu on my 1024x600 AspireOne netbook since 9.04. As a matter of fact the KDE 4 taskbar uses the smallest vertical space compared to Gnome or Windows. Additionally the KDE windows in general use less whitespace than Gnome.
