As some of you already know, I am a big fan of the KDE desktop environment. In my search to reach Linux KDE perfection I have tested out a number of different distributions. Now that I have tried out quite a few of the most popular distributions I figured I would write a little bit to tell you fine people my thoughts on each:
* Fedora 11
KDE Version: 4.2 – 4.3
Pros: very secure, not too many modifications of the KDE source, cutting edge
Cons: could have really used some more modifications of the base KDE packages in order to better integrate GTK+, Bluetooth problems, not always stable
I have written at length about my experiences with Fedora during this experiment. Without re-writing everything again here let me simply say this: Fedora is primarily a GNOME distribution and I could never shake the feeling that KDE got the left-over treatment.
