A _real_ KDE3 was in 4.0 and 4.1, I've installed a host with the
latter couple years ago to have a MiniDV/FireWire camcorder
capable system (kernel upstream broke fw1394 support later on
while chasing storage applications, and kino along with the
libraries involved couldn't keep up back then; so "use the
hardware with corresponding age software" pragma held true);
and you know what... it was a boatload of nostalgia, the world
was quite different back in 2007 (but then again, 15 years on
I'd probably be as nostalgic regarding ALT Education 10 with
KDE5 we finally got finally running on Elbrus 8CB! :).
