    So, it's gonna Krash a lot :p.
    I am not touching it till I see something that's gonna look and feel different enough and usable for a non-developer.

    You got that right :p
    Actually it has been released so that developers can start feeling that its high time they start porting their applications to Qt4 and link them to KDE4 libs. As far as I have read, this movement will not be an easy journey. Also, if you see around, you'll find that hardly any application exists that uses Qt4 and that might not be too good for KDE4. So, this snapshot will be a good thing for the developers and KDE alike.

    @Kumarmohit, look at the functionality & features it offers first. You can always theme
    as you like & change the appearance of KDE. Visit www.kde-look.org to download
    themes, Here's KDE3 XP style Theme. Get it from here

    October 2006 is scheduled to see first "Technical Preview" of KDE4. So if everything goes according to KDE devs' plans then we should expect some serious eye candy around that time :)
