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.

juste no.
i'm in the same situation, i jump from distro to distro unable to find what i like.
i used fedora11 (pure garbage with gnome in my kde), to mandriva2010 (dependency hell, nvidia not working ...)
by the way, i've got two another computer, one wich stay with kubuntu (always last version) (not good, but not bad), and opensuse 11.2 wich simply works. i prefere a more simplier package manager, but it do job better than mandriva (ya realy)

I'm very surprised to read this. I now have Powerpack 2010 installed on my home desktop, my home laptop and my work desktop, which in fact is the second there in six months: the only problem seems to be with the laptop, which uses ATI rather than NVIDIA, which is what the other machines have. Arguably the NVIDIA machines have smoother graphics than the ATI, but problems are very few; Mandriva has become much more reliable now.

Or should I say . . ? KDE is now more reliable after the horror of 4.0 and 4.1, from 4.2 it was quite reasonable and in the current (4.3) version it is very good.

Not sure where this constant complaint about "dependency hell" is coming from. There seems to be nothing like that on any of my systems. Have you tried doing a "urpmi --auto-select" to check if anything needs installing?
