KDE I've been investigating switching my desktop distribution from Kubuntu to something more... Seriously maintained. I love debian, and consider it one of the best distros out there, but Ubuntu's KDE variant is downright pathetic.

It would be interesting to have a comparison to see how well KDE does on Red Hat, SUSE, and Mandriva.

Obviously, the author has his own arbitrary criteria for the perfect distro, which is fine. But once three out of the top four distros are dismissed without being tried, the article isn't really useful for discussion.

And to be completely frank, I agree. This isn't really a "start a discussion" article. I had written it entirely to convey personal experience rather than as a more scholarly, researched article. Doing do would have taken more than the 34 minutes it took to write what I did.

I think *everyone* has their own personal opinions on what they want out of a distro. That's what's great about the Linux ecosystem, I don't have to swallow the one authorized version. The "Perfect Distro" doesn't really exist, but I can look for what feels pretty close to perfect for me.

Honestly, I'd love it if OSNews featured a Blog post section so that more casual posts (like this one) can be submitted and kept separate from news-oriented posts.
