This is why Red Hat does not push out KDE 4.0 unto their corporate desktop customers.  They know better :)  If they did, then I can just see the complaints.

Don't let that discourage you though. :)

If it works like FreeBSD, then it is supposed to be good since it is based off the ports system, ports/portage.  Things take time to build, but when they are done you are ready for some real work :).  I've tried Sabayon Live DVD which is based on Gentoo and it worked well in my opinion.
