I installed KDE 4.1 for Kubuntu Hardy 8.04 x86_64 from the ppa launchpad repositories:

http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-members-kde4/ubuntu/

There is your stable and up-to-date version of KDE that beats GNOME hands down.

It has everything that KDE 3.5 has, including the ability to run KDE 3.5 applications, but it also has many of the advancements brought by the emerging KDE4 capabilities.

I set the menu to "classic mode" and you can use KDE 4.1 just about the same way that you used KDE 3.5.9.

All of the KDE4 naysayers can apologise now ... it would be a great time IMO to get it done before the rush.
