    Usability nightmare

    KDE is hampered by stupid default settings and horrible usability.

    It overwhelms you by presenting every imaginable feature under the sun in every menu, context menu, and toolbar.

    The launcher takes way too many clicks to get things done.

    The theme lacks paddings and margins around buttons.

        Have you ever actually used Plasma Active, or did you just see 'KDE' and launch straight into your KDE rant? http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showt...224#post429224

          Plasma or without, whole KDE is a big mess.

            So that's a NO.

                I hope we see more distros packaging this in the future (or dedicated distros), i would like to try it but the current image in their page is of kubuntu 13.04

                  I'm quite confidend that more distros will package it. It's much easier now with the shell switching. With the previous version it was not intended to be co-installable (e.g. KWin needed to be compiled with different flags) and that made it rather difficult for distros.

                    Install Kubuntu ( http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kubuntu-14.04 ) and add one if these PPAs to your sources.list ?
