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.

Now come on, in the text, in the comments, you keep bringing up how there's no good distro with KDE. I tell you what, a distro is just as good as the one who installs it and sets it up. A good pre-selection of themes and default settings from the distro's part can help somewhat but that's just how far it goes. You want a good distro for KDE (still find this nonsense) ? I use Debian testing with kde4 from day 1, and it's working great. Yes, this is just me, and yes, I'm an idiot who sets up his own stuff the way he likes it, and I didn't ever stuck with a prepackaged distro's settings, ever. So what ? It's still a very good way to have a working kde-based desktop.

Oh, one more, for years I've been mad about how boring and ugly screenshots people show about kde (or gnome for that matter) in reviews. Well, I see that will never ever change.
