Yeah I personally had given up on KDE after trying every release from 4.0 to 4.6. But the advantage KDE has got now is that they are now performing acceptably and have no real traditional desktop competition. (I either get Gnome3 or Unity (both are controversial) before dropping all the way down to XFCE/LXDE.)

If you count OS X as a desktop operating system, Unity has pretty much a traditional desktop. The Dash resembles the dock, search resembles Spotlight, and toplevel menus are all familiar.

The Quantal Quetzal beta already ran very stable on my machine, but I did run into in issue where every time I start Google Chrome (Win key, 'chrome') I get directed to an Software Centre 'page' about Google Chrome. I can only start Chrome by pressing Winkey + A, and then typing 'chrome'.

Also, the Show/Hide Desktop was in the Alt-Tab, which is annoying, because you'll accidentally hide all apps every now and then. This is old behaviour, but can be disabled in 12.10 now:

Why this is the default, is beyond me :/.

But generally, it's shaping up to be a great release!

WORKSFORME kde 4.4 from Debian Squeeze.

Just think it's important to make known that not _everybody_ has been having the same experience as you.
