KDE The KDE team has released KDE 4.3. This release comes packed with improvements and bug fixes - in fact, over the last six months, 10000 bugs were squashed, 2000 feature requests handled, and 63000 changes were checked in by 700 people. We've already talked about this new release in quite some detail last week, but let's take a look at the most important new features anyway.

my first comment ever ;)

This week, i read article about the lack of distribution that fully implement the greatness of KDE. Then, that OpenSUSE issue.

To some level, i agree. Being KDE fans since Beta 4 (on Redhat 5.1), i've been having difficulties to find the implementation of KDE 4 that have a good "feel". Maybe this is why, many people still complaining about KDE 4.

Then..why you, the the good guys from KDE camp, don't try to build your own distribution. If you can bring this great product, im sure designing a new distribution is an achievable task.

Don't start from ground up.Take Ubuntu (i know, there is Kubuntu, but there are tons of Ubuntu with Gnome variant out there. So, its ok), or whatever you like.
Wrap the KDE 4 around it. Since you are the one that fully understand KDE potential, im sure you can implement it the right way.

And, please don't use any GTK based app,but only if you really have to.

Make it real.OpenSUSE community might even at your door right now ;)

Problem with that is that it is a. far too much work and b. not our thing. Many KDE dev's do work on distro stuff, btw, like Kubuntu and OpenSuse.

if they do work on kubuntu, they need to do more - kubuntu is the worst KDE distro i've ever used, and not improving.
