Linux "Ubuntu, once the darling of desktop Linux and the overwhelmingly popular choice for newcomers, may soon lose that role to Mint." I switched to Mint KDE, and have no intention of going back. By the way, KDE4 is finally good (don't hit me, Aaron) - fast, fluid, stable, pretty, and thanks to its versatility, a joy to use after a few hours of tweaking. Just... Please, unify Plasma and the regular widget style. This is insanity.

Only one problem

Mint is almost perfect. The major problem is the poor design choice in not allowing upgrades to new versions. The "backup" and "restore" mentality doesn't work. It's too much work and no standard desktop user will do that.

By the why, still hate KDE.
"...after a few hours of tweaking" - Exactly why it's broken.
