    This is what you want, KDE2 buildable mostly... on modern systems. KDE 1 is also up there.

    KDE 5 (Plasma) is imho very stable these days and for years already.

    But sure, i'ill bite. Spit it out, what's unstable according to you?
    Broken themes (various glitches and small visual bugs), broken window decorations (likewise), broken plasmoids (likewise and what they are intended to do), crashing plasmoids, crashing Plasma, very high memory usage, relatively slow to load (compared to XFCE/KDE3). It usually takes me less than 10 minutes to find glaring bugs in each KDE 5 release that I've tried for the past several years. If you're about to say "Try the latest version", don't. Fedora 29 contains the latest available release. Still buggy as hell.

    Also, see this amazing bug report which was closed as WONT_FIX.

    With KDE 3 developers tried to cater to its users. KDE 4 was the first release they created primarily for themselves. KDE 5 is solely for themselves. That's not how you develop a successful DE meant for the broad masses.

    KDE 5 hasn't still matured unfortunately. I also try it from time to time and it's always a huge disappointment. Still late KDE 4 releases worked great.

    I hope Plasma will be scrapped one day and we'll get our lean Kdesktop back.

    Yes, that's the good part of it.

    Yeah, the default theme is pretty outdated by now, but Q4OS actually has a more modern theme that you can use on any distro which makes Trinity looks like KDE 5.

    There hasn't been much development lately, but still, there were a few nice commits in the past couple of months so it's dead: https://hg.dillo.org/dillo
    But I agree that development is too slow.
