The popular Linux Mint distribution released the release candidate (RC) for version 17 "Qiana" KDE a few days ago. Version 17 of this Ubuntu-derivative has long-term support (LTS) for updates so it's good until 2019. I've been using the Cinnamon version of Linut Mint 17 (final) for the last couple of weeks and quite enjoy it. It's a very polished distro. There is also a finalized MATE version. Have your desktop your way!
