> TDE is also at an obvious disadvantage in its lack of counterparts to advanced KDE 4 features such as Folder Views and Activities. Nor does it integrate any online applications or services into the desktop, the way that an increasing number of desktop environments do.
Looks like a feature.

Not being able to do something is a feature? Sure, that's why most people still run DOS 1.0 - fewer features so it HAS to be better. It doesn't even run on modern computers so it's rock stable - nobody will ever experience a crash!

I think the advantage of not having folder views or activities lies in ease of use... while it's possible that activities are useful for something, I haven't discovered what.

It depends on what you want to do.
I am running Slackware 12.2 with KDE 3.5.10. My highly customized Slackware system does all I need it to do. There is simply no need for me to throw out my configuration just to use KDE4 (and spend considerable time to create a configuration that serves my needs.) I am likely going to install Trinity, to get the fixes and features they built in without the major surgery for an update to KDE4.
