A stable distro. I'm not a big fan of KDE but if I was to use a KDE distro -- this would be it.

It has and does everything it promises. One of the few KDE-distro's I like.
Con: no azerty-keyboard layout, wich makes it useless for Belgian and French users. A shame, otherwise this would be my mean distro.
