KDE For a very long time now, I've been on the hunt for a distribution that really put a lot of effort into their KDE4 implementation. This has been a frustrating search, full of broken installations, incredibly slow performance, and so many visual artifacts they made my eyes explode. Since KDE 4.3 is nearing release, I had to pick up this quest in order to take a look at where 4.3 stands - and I found a home in the KDE version of Fedora 11. Read on for a look as to where KDE 4.3 currently stands.

Agreed. Most "mainstream" distributions are, unfortunately, GTK+ based primarily. This may be due to earlier restrictive licensing of Qt. However, now there is no excuse for the same for any distribution that wants to go with KDE4 as the main DE.

My current favourites are:
1. Pardus 2009
2. openSUSE
3. Mandriva
4. Kubuntu

Fedora, sadly, is too GNOME-centric and, I suspect, may never really give KDE4 the due it deserves.
