Looking for Best KDE based Linux OS

Its again that time of my life when I go Operating System(OS) shopping. Having worked on practically all major and minor OSes from Dos* to Windows * to Linux (Redhat, *Ubuntu, etc) to FreeBSD to Solaris to AIX to Novell etc etc, I have now kind of outgrown my current Kubuntu Linux OS and want something new to lay my hands on.

I tried following his advice of moving mysql-global.conf but with no success although I haven’t used Akonadi or any Akonadi dependent apps(KMail, Kontact, etc) as yet. Read on…
