installed latest kde on ubuntu 10. not thrilled!

Keep in mind that Ubuntu is generally not well-regarded for their KDE
support. They tend to strongly favor Gnome.

That doesn't mean that you can't do it - just don't expect the same
level of polish.

There is Kubuntu, which has KDE as a default GUI ...

As a long timer Kubuntu user, I concur with Rich.  Cannonical's support for Kubuntu falls far below that of Gnome, which is a shame.  The distros which provide better KDE support are RPM based, and I prefer APT.

I remember Red Hat 6 & 7 had that reputation.  Fedora, on the other hand seems to have a decent reputation for KDE.
