Linux distribution that offers a good KDE experience

We have deployed Gnome and Ubuntu on our desktops for a long time until Gnome was split into Unity and Gnome 3. Both versions of Gnome doesn't fit into our company, so we have chosen to give KDE a try.

We are looking for a distribution (either Linux or BSD) that meets our requirements:

  • Good KDE experience/integration
  • Easy to use for a novice user
  • Easy installation, deployment and maintenance
  • Stable
  • Good hardware support
  • An up-to-date big collection of packages
  • Easy installation of proprietary software (eg. Flash Player, Java, device drivers etc.)
  • Good integration with GTK apps

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Most distributions ship KDE. If Ubuntu was satisfactory so far, you might as well stick with it. – Gilles Sep 18 '11 at 17:55

    @Gilles I haven't had any good experiences with Kubuntu. It seems to be a rather half-baked distribution. – Jonathan Frank Sep 18 '11 at 19:16
