Nothing hypothetical:

I use KDE3, because there are no repos with pre-built TDE for openSUSE, and 
there is no Debian I can live with for daily desktop use. At the rate it's 
going, another year or two and KDE4 might be usable (assuming anyone ever 
decides to try to finish restoring discarded KDE3 functionality), maybe 
around 4.10.1. Not likely Gnome will ever be suitable here. Actually I use 
two desktops kept booted 24/7: KDE3, and OS/2 WPS.
