Have you tried Mint 10 KDE? I personally much prefer it over Kubuntu. I just love the 'polish' that the Mint Linux team put on their Distro's

Agreed, I do like Mint as opposed to Ubuntu, but it is a more bloated (by definition) OS. Bloat isn't a problem if you've got the computer for it (hence why my rig runs Vista), but it does kinda limit it to better machines (that said, I've got a friend of mine running Mint Xfce on their P4, no complaints really).

Oh, and you can't upgrade versions of Mint (using dist-upgrade), but you can with Ubuntu (even if it's not entirely recommended). Having to reinstall is not cool, and not what I'd associate with Linux (and it's modular nature)

I would be disappointed in Fedora if it wasn't a good release their dev team seems to be one of the more competent ones out there

i actually have not seen mint's version of KDE in awhile...everytime i've "tried" mint, i've honestly felt it was just a themed ubuntu with stuff that i would install in the first 10 minutes anyway, never screamed at me "i'm different!"

i wasn't actually referring to the overall look of KDE, i was more or less referring to the stability of it. compiling a desktop manager, and then making it work correctly without a problem with your OS is a very tedious job. i've seen distro's who do offer KDE but it is extremely botched job and if that was the only experience you ever had with KDE from those distros, then yeah you wouldn't like it.

then you look at masterpiece done jobs of KDE like Suse's and Slackware and you then you realize how much lacking there actual is in arch, (k)ubuntu, mint, fedora, etc...for KDE in favor of gnome.

Hrmm.. Been playing with 11.04 for a couple days now..

I don't know how I really feel about it. Im really missing the old menu bars at the top of my interface. It was so easy to navigate. Now, you either have to search for the program you want to use, or have it on the unity bar. The navigation is also clunky.

And, they now put the system settings in a Windows control panel-esque window, as opposed the dropdown menu of maverick. Oh yea, and they put the system settings shortcut just below the "restart" "hibernate" "power off" buttons. I've already misclicked several times. That could be bad if you're not paying attention to what you're doing.

I have also noticed an increase in how often I get prompted for a password to do stuff. It's annoying now. And, I can't seem to move any windows to my second monitor. When I try to move them to the side, they just attach to the side of the first monitor, and refuse to go past it.

There are some improvements I've noticed, but overall it feels less like Linux and more like OSX. I understand WHY ubuntu is going this way, they are trying to get a larger share of the mainstream userbase. Which is such a double edged blade.

And yes, I am not a fan of Ubuntu either. They don't keep it vanilla enough for my liking. Ubuntu Server is cool and all, but if I had to use aptitude I'd stick to Debian.
