If they are so inclined, Kubuntu 10.04 users can try out KDE SC 4.5 via the Kubuntu backports PPA.

https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/backports

Packages are available for both Kubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) and Maverick (which will eventually become 10.10).

Not right now, as the Kubtunu backports archive is broken at the moment, both for x86 and x86-64. They're working on it. Just installed Kubuntu, you see.

As most KDE SC users know, Kubuntu itself is broken. It's one of the reasons why KDE has a bad reputation among some people.
People who want to check SC 4.5 out, should get the semi-official openSUSE-based version: http://home.kde.org/~kdelive/
