I like it. Now we just need a decent KDE Linux distribution.

Arch Linux does a good job of KDE, and because it is a rolling release it has KDE 4.4 SC right now. I'm running it as I type this.

If Arch is a bit too cutting edge for you, then perhaps Mandriva is the go. The second alpha of Mandriva 2010.1 was released recently:

http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=05893

and that release featured KDE SC 4.4 RC3. The final release of Mandriva is not due until 2010-June-03.

Fedora 13 is due for release 2010-May-11, and that may suit as Fedora normally has a fairly reasonable KDE implementation, but it is not the default since Fedora is primarily a GNOME distribution. Perhaps Mandriva would be more to your liking.

OpenSuse normally has a good KDE desktop implementation as the default, and that is due 2010-July-15, but given its association with Suse there is some danger it may try to include Mono, so beware.

Yea watch out, it might give you the ability to download useful programs. Scary stuff.

Just to draw the ire of many I'll say "Kubuntu".

Dont' think so. It's miles away form other KDE's implementations.

I'm using and liking Sidux at work. It's pretty much just Debian Unstable. I kinda like it -- but I have an elevated tolerance for things breaking.
