    I was looking for a good KDE distribution and recently tried the KDE version of Mint 12. Having come from Mandriva and openSUSE, I expected it to be more polished, but I was disappointed. There were several annoying bugs related to taskbar and window switching and no updates or fixes for them. I hope they include the latest KDE packages in 13 and fix those issues.

    I had the same opinion until the latest release. I expressed here several times my frustration with both Unity and Gnome Shell, and ended up using LXDE with Compiz. With the release of Ubuntu 12.04 I decided to give Unity another chance, and to my suprise it is working pretty well. Everything I need is working, and I'm starting to get used to the 'lens' concept, which in the end will replace the gnome-do that I was used to.
    So, well done Canonical and Ubuntu community! :)
