The first thing you'll notice is the refreshing speed at which KDE 4 loads. The components still load individually but the speed at which they load is impressive (less than five seconds in a virtual machine with only 384MB of RAM). Once presented with the fully loaded desktop, the changes are subtle but surprising.
