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.

Funny you should elaborate on kubuntu in particular. Guess what has sparked me recent interest in this? apt *inability* to present me a list of packages i've installed by hand. Even though apt does remove "uneeded dependencies" upon package removal, it's a very complex guessing game, because dpkg/aptitude/apt-get/synaptic/tasksel has this old and increasingly complex relationship. And it doesn't get it right every time. Especially when dealing with "metapackages" and task.
I'm not saying ubuntu / debian got it right. I'm saying the architecture of PISI is beautiful, and the python code is very lean. It wouldn't be too hard to implement "autoremove" and proper marking of packages install reason (manual/automatic), and the introduction of hard/soft depends.
Take a look on pacman in arch linux. That's a work of art if you ask me.
