Read on which one got our best score on our long term test and usage.

While RedHat is geared towards ease of use on the desktop, it is not exactly configured for performance. While their version of Gnome is fairly refined, they have severely hacked and abused KDE. I do not complain though. I like KDE, so I use other distros for that when I require it. The point is, that basing KDE on a distribution that has notoriously bad support for KDE is kinda silly. It would be like using IE in OSX as a comparison for .... oh wait....
