Linspire "Freespire, the free as in beer version of the Linspire Linux distribution, this month released Freespire 2.0, the first version of the operating system based on the popular Ubuntu distribution, and the first to contain proprietary codecs and drivers. Despite its attractive appearance, it left me with mixed feelings."

To my mind KDE by default sucks. I find KDE in Kubuntu and Debian just awful and extremely ugly. I still think that Kubuntu in comparison with the new Freespire looks half baked.
To repeat my point. I am not a KDE man and KDE does not shine for me (I use Gnome), bet KDE in Freespire is really polished and looks quite decent. The only distros that can be compared to that are SuSE and PCLOS.

Well, I totally disagree that "KDE by default sucks"
Take an unmodified KDE as it comes from and I find it the best DE of any OS (IMHO).
But then I agree that Kubuntu has badly crippled KDE, while the Freespire, PCLOS and SUSE ones are really polished. SUSE in particular has been famous through the years for its nice implementations of KDE.
