KDE The KDE Software Compilation 4.11 has been released.

Gearing up for long term maintenance, Plasma Workspaces delivers further improvements to basic functionality with a smoother taskbar, smarter battery widget and improved sound mixer. The introduction of KScreen brings intelligent multi-monitor handling to the Workspaces, and large scale performance improvements combined with small usability tweaks make for an overall nicer experience.

This release marks massive improvements in the KDE PIM stack, giving much better performance and many new features. Kate improves the productivity of Python and Javascript developers with new plugins, Dolphin became faster and the educational applications bring various new features.

This release of KDE Platform 4.11 continues to focus on stability. New features are being implemented for our future KDE Frameworks 5.0 release, but for the stable release we managed to squeeze in optimizations for our Nepomuk framework.

That name.

Not to mention that THERE ARE flat themes for KDE out there. Few and far between but hey, they are there for those that want it and it took me a whooping 2 seconds in Google to find them:

It is important to point out that for those with OCD regarding their desktops, Bespin allows one to tweak pretty much every visual aspect of KDE. As you very well put it, the ability to customize it remains one of the defining traits of KDE.
