KDE For a very long time now, I've been on the hunt for a distribution that really put a lot of effort into their KDE4 implementation. This has been a frustrating search, full of broken installations, incredibly slow performance, and so many visual artifacts they made my eyes explode. Since KDE 4.3 is nearing release, I had to pick up this quest in order to take a look at where 4.3 stands - and I found a home in the KDE version of Fedora 11. Read on for a look as to where KDE 4.3 currently stands.

Mandriva .. hands down

Amazing you didn't try Mandriva .. Conectiva had it once .. and ever since they bought it (and Helio began working on Mandriva's KDE) they inherited the best KDE implementation/integration I've ever seen ..

I'll second that! If you haven't tried Mandriva, you are definitely missing out! KDE 4 is simply stunning in Mandriva, and by far, the most polished of all distros. Too bad I still long for Synaptic instead of RPMDrake, though...but it's not bad.

I agree that Mandriva provides the best KDE 4 I have seen. I had been a KDE fan, then questioned it seeing the Kubuntu and Suse versions of KDE 4. Mandriva works well for me though.
