Distro's don't want to have to ship the older versions as it is a lot of work to keep that all packaged.

The only KDE 3 app I still run is krecord, there's no port of that - works fine. Other stuff I've tried but the KDE3 apps are so much behind in functionality these days it isn't funny :(

Yet another place where distributions are a problem not a solution.

Given that this is in a discussion about KDE and that the KDE projects shipped quite a few immature technology at the start of KDE4.x enabling them by default which meant that if a user wanted a stable KDE desktop he had to find a distribution which disabled those things (or do the work himself) I cannot help but finding this sentence funny.

Well, given that the KDE project explicitly told distributions to stay with KDE 3.5 for their stable releases and only offer KDE 4.[01] as an option for the unwary, and the problem you described resulted from distributions choosing to ignore the upstream advice, I cannot help but find your statement ignorant ;-)

You assume that KDE4.[01] is the only one to have troubles, but PCLinuxOS still disabled Nepomuk much later than this..
