The friend of mine recommended this distro and as soon as I installed it I got mesmorised how stable and fast it was.
Everything worked out of the box and with new KDE and Plasma (panels and widgets), 3D desktop and the rest of the eye candy looks and works great.
It was the first distro for which I didn't need any console intervention. All can be done safely in GUI. There are tons of themes and widgets and they all can be ultra easy to install just by clicking. So far...I had no issues...none! With all effects enabled, it's ultra fast even on my pretty crappy notebook.
This is mine desktop after few minutes of tweaking ( I haven't been using KDE for ages):

Give it a try! For me...this is the future of Linux Desktop.
