        Any other rolling release distros out there that actually can be installed by mere mortals?

          If the mortal can read, Archlinux can be installed. Not trollling, you just need to partition your target, format it, install some packages, change a config, update your boot loader and you're done. Try it!

            I did try it. I hated it :-P And I'm a Gentoo user, even. I guess I was looking for "emerge kde", but didn't find it.

              "pacman -S kde" didn't work for you? That would automatically take your system from base install to full KDE.

                  I blame the system, not the user ;-)

                    You might be interested in Manjaro Linux. Or Archbang Linux. I'd mention Chakra too, but you might not be that much of a KDE fan(only available DE there).
                    All rolling, very recent packages. The first too are pretty much Arch, but a bit pre-configured you could say. They both get you a desktop after install.
                    There's likely more, but I don't remember now. I think Manjaro have their own repos and do a little bit more testing than Arch(but it's still bleeding edge).
