I woud prefer KDE SC 4.4.0. I have to install it in one of my pet machines to take a look. Previous versions were OK for me. I also believe that they should support Debian KFreeBSD in any possible way (PCBSD wil become the BSD Ubuntu).

"I also believe that they should support Debian KFreeBSD in any possible way"

Why should we turn everything into ubuntu? The FreeBSD userland has a lot of benefits that are lost in Debian/GNU!/KFreeBSD.

Maybe ubuntu should support KFreeBSD which seems a lot easier and would make a lot more sense, since linux is only the kernel and the rest of the distribution is the largest part of it.
