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.

What KDE needs is a distribution entirely focused on showing off KDE 4 in its best light and integrating the rest of the system with it.


While I agree, I also think it's KDE's fault by not coming up with good defaults to begin with. IMO this is what makes it so difficult for the distributors in the first place.

The fact that it is so difficult also results in inconsistencies between KDE based distributions, which in turn creates uncertainty for the users.

So, maybe some day we'll get that ONE "perfect" distribution for KDE... But that'll never satisfy all users who also might have other preferences (for pkg-management and the like).
