KDE 4 series has become alright, despite some crash here or there. But the lack of new themes on par with Oxygen are the huge low down. We have some poor polished QT themes, but nothing really better than Oxygen, which can be very tiring - all the grey gradient with those ridiculous rounded buttons for its style...
The lack of an specific font seems to be being worked out, but my bet it's that is going to be a little better than GNOME's Cantarell. From a first impression, Ubuntu's fonts remain the best typeface, IMO.
To KDE team: More [embedded] themes and styles, before going to 5 series. Please.
This KDE4 user recommends the "h2o" theme.
Perhaps that would be worth a shot for you?
