KDE I've been investigating switching my desktop distribution from Kubuntu to something more... Seriously maintained. I love debian, and consider it one of the best distros out there, but Ubuntu's KDE variant is downright pathetic.

Mandriva?

tessmonsta, you say that RPM distros feel wrong to you because of, as I understand, dependency hell and related problems. I understand prefering apt-get to urpmi, as it still is somewhat faster (there have been huge improvement on that front in the last couple of years); my distro of choice is Mandriva, and I haven't had any dependency problem in years.
Honestly the "dependency hell" image associated with RPM distros is plain outdated. Nowadays it's as solid as that of the debian based ones.

That said, I only suggest giving a try to Mandriva again because I heard more than once that its KDE4 implementation was top notch, I don't use it myself.
