Slackware, Slax "Slackware 14.0 brings many updates and enhancements, among which you'll find two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: Xfce 4.10.0, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment, and KDE 4.8.5, a recent stable release of the 4.8.x series of the award-winning KDE desktop environment. [...] Slackware uses the 3.2.29 kernel bringing you advanced performance features such as journaling filesystems, SCSI and ATA RAID volume support, SATA support, Software RAID, LVM (the Logical Volume Manager), and encrypted filesystems. Kernel support for X DRI (the Direct Rendering Interface) brings high-speed hardware accelerated 3D graphics to Linux."

I was going through a dependency hell trying to install K3B 2.0.2 on RHEL, so I am just calling it a day. I'm gonna try Slackware again. However, I will need: Eclipse, Inkscape, LibreOffice. I think there's no major issue there. I will be going with KDE since I despise XFCE ugliness. Good to know it's faster on AMD coz it's everything here is AMD and my GPU is a new brand Radeon.
