After using RH for years, I switched to Debian and am glad I did. However, I
successfully bypassed RH's screwed-up KDE under 8.0 not installing it. I
compiled my own QT/KDE to live in /opt. And btw, at least as a default,
Debian does not isolate KDE in its own subdirectory either. Everything is
dumped into /usr/bin, which I hate. Bottom line, you'll be happier if you
just roll your own KDE.
