which application, because I personally ported couple of older qt3 (kde3)
applications to TDE (trinity desktop) which is successor of KDE3. So there
is might be a chance that if ported app works. Also it is possible to just
use the KDE3.5 LTS
As for if it would provide the same functionality in this specific case
(kde3 -> tde) the answer is yes.
There could be also surprises i.e. HAL -> UDEV. So if you have HAL
dependency it will not work as udev was adopted later.
