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.

[qWhile 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. [/q]
I don't think it's KDE's fault at all because the average distributor seems to be so, so poor at making decisions as to what goes in. PulseAudio is the biggest example of an exceptionally poor decision made by many distributors to include it.

Distributors are just no good at putting things together into a coherent whole and making sure that they get involved upstream to make it happen. They're just glorified packagers and you don't get the impression they are putting together an 'operating system'.
