Kde 4.6


Hey guys

Ok basically im after the best/most stable KDE 4.6 ( tho ill settle with 4.5 if need be ) distro out there

im not a total noob, i try distro's each month and play with them for fun, my favourites fedora lovelock. but unfortantly, i can only download 1 distro each month due to download limits in australia haha, sucks

So yea. ive done alot of research on kde distro's and atm the most promising distro is Pardus 2011. but its not 4.6 and id love to try 4.6

So for that. ofc opensuse, and Mageia look the most interesting

So im stuck between Mageia and pardus really. so any opinions would rock xD

Well, gentoo has 4.6.2 available, as I see now, but it could take a whole day to compile.

Arch uses binary packages, you don't compile anything yourself. It still requires a lot of command line knowledge to set up, though, since it's just a bare minimum system once it's installed.
