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 is the best linux distro for KDE 4 use.

It is more user-friendly than kubuntu and even ubuntu (because of Mandriva Control Center) and it is lighter and stable than opensuse and fedora. Mandriva One is a livecd which has even proprietary things like Flash plugin, nvidia and ati drivers, etc. The almost official PLF repositories can easily supply things like mp3 support, codecs, DVD CSS, etc.

The main problem of Mandriva Linux is the bad marketing of Mandriva and the common myth that it is a paid (having to spend money to download and license it) distribution, which is false.
