I still use KDE3 which is Qt3 based.  I understand the motivation to 
update to a Qt4 based system, but I don't see the need of changes to the 
user interface.

If course I'm not a big gui user.  I really like konsole for a terminal, 
and I like ksnapshot, but those are about all the KDE programs I use.

I don't really care for the Gnome look and feel.

The nice thing about building your own system is that you only upgrade 
when you want to and what you want.  On my system, other tools like 
mysql and apache are quite recent.
