King of KDistros

Filed under

Well, done at last! After some time gathering opinions from readers and quite some more time testing each one of the contenders, I have finished my comparison of the best of the best in KDE distros.

THE CONTENDERS

The final list of contenders was not directly extracted from the poll I put together. I decided to include some other distros at some readers request, as well as leaving one behind. The infamous leftover was Chakra, which I didn't manage to install (used both 2011.4 and 2011.9 images and followed all suggestions in the project's own Wiki with identical results: None) and the additions were Mandriva and Fedora. The final list of contenders goes as follows:

OpenSUSE 11.4 (12.1 Milestone 5 was still too un stable)
Mandriva 2011
Fedora 15 (16 Alpha was still too unstable)
PCLinuxOS 2011
Kubuntu 11.04
Pardus 2011.1

rest here
