KDE The KDE project has released the first release candidate for KDE 4.2. "The KDE Community today announced the immediate availability of "Cilense", (a.k.a. KDE 4.2 Release Candidate), the only planned release candidate for the KDE 4.2 desktop. Cilense is aimed at testers and reviewers. It should provide a solid ground to report last-minute bugs that need to be tackled before KDE 4.2.0 is released. Reviewers can use this release candidate to get a first look at the upcoming KDE 4.2 desktop which provides significant improvements all over the desktop and applications. It is not recommended for everyday use, however."

Perhaps I will be willing to try out KDE 4.5.9 - until there, I will prevent myself and others to delight a sea of bugs and mentally ill features.

You're loss.
I personally find it very stable and love the freedom the features provide.

Perhaps if you actually tried KDE4.x before commenting, you might realise how grossly inaccurate your comments are.

Unlike the OP - that somehow takes pride in not trying KDE 4.x before commenting, I'm currently using KDE 4.2RC1 (Fedora RPMs from the KDE Packaging project) and thus far, I've yet to experience problems / bugs / crashes. (Beyond one or two minor issues.)
While I still miss a couple of KDE 3.5.x features, compared to KDE 4.2 on my Fedora 10, KDE 3.5.10 on my CentOS 5.2 machine does look outdated and missing a number of useful features. (E.g. Multiple folder separate views per desktop, krunner is better than katapult, etc)
