What does it add from 3.0?

It's mainly a bugfix release. Don't think there are many feature enhancements.
I hope they have done something about the clipboard (which is really f****d up in 3.0).

not enough time from release of 3.0 to now. i think it's only a bugfix release!

What matters, i think i will never use KDE again ;)

Think on developing times. They can't have done soo much new. But okay, there could be a lot of bugs fixed. I hope for KDE, i havn't found bugs in kde 3.0, but i think there are lot of i havn't seend (used it around a week? *LOL*)

I don't use KDE but I think it's great ;)

There were 5 weeks between KDE 3.0 and KDE 3.0.1 and you can fix a lot of bugs within this time...
I just hope Gentoo clears up all the things (some day everything releated to 2.x is deleted, everything is 3.0.1 and not some pieces are still 3.0 etc.]
but I guess they'll do it right ;)

It's always been quite nippy for me... are you sure you're not falling victim to the name resolution issue discussed in the sticky note at the top of this forum?

I don't use KDE... I've just read alot of posts with claims of slowness. With the bugs and reported speed issues, I decided it can't be better than Gnome. I've had no problems with Gnome, and it doesn't seem slow.

only as a reference : I'm using kde3 with this system :

amd k7-800 and 196mb of sdram

no troubles involving speed. Gfx are great. We just need some more q3 compatible soft ;)

Indeed the ram usage is quite a lot (in comparison with fluxbox etc)... If you realy need the extra free mbs of ram, don't use kde I guess, but if you're just a desktop user, I think using e.g fluxbox for less ram usage reasons, is quite stupid, you know, because you're not using the extra ram anyway ... ;)

I'm using about 150mbs of ram now, running kde, with som apps opened : x-chat, konsole (5 subs), system load manager, xmms, 3 konquerors ...

I've never had complaints about speed in kde. (is my system realy that good :P )

I find kde3 to be much faster and cleaner than 2.x The biggest improvement by far is speed. AA fonts are really nice too. I recommend it highly for any desktop user.
