| Meme 1: What is the future of 3.5?
| This year, as with most years since KDE3 emerged, there have been huge
| deployments of KDE 3 based software. These deployments will not shift for
| years to come, no matter what KDE4 is. This is because large institutional
| deployments (government, corporate, educational, etc) typically have 3-7 year
| cycles (sometimes even longer) between major changes. Patches and security
| fixes? Sure. Major revamps? No. This alone ensures that KDE3 will remain
| supported for years. Why? Because there are users.
