I will not argue with you, you are trying to derail this thread which
is meant to help users who are stuck with KDE 3, not users who have
personal, emotional feelings against KDE 4. I suggest that you simply
killfile this thread and let me continue helping others.

Thank you, that was a very productive and insightful suggestion.

Then please continue using KDE 3 and let me help those who are stuck
with it and would like to use the more current version but are unable
to do so.

You can continue using KDE 3.5.

No, I am asking what features are missing in KDE 4 to the people who
actually know what features are missing and have not migrated because
of that. If you are not one of those people (obviously, you are not)
then please disregard this thread. Thanks.
