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

    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.

    So that's a NO.

    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.
