Honestly I would say NO!

They ( the development staff) took out one feature that is keeping me on 
KDE 4.

And that feature was called the multiple wallpapers on different 
Virtural Desktops.
Now I didnt use multiple wallpapers, but I would put an Icon on one 
desktop because thats the desktop I want that program to run on, and 
then put another icon on another virtural desktop because thats where I 
want that app to run. They the creators claim its because of " Security 
Flaws and risks" my butt!

And when adding icons to the desktop they have this HORRIBLE clear box 
around them in KDE 5, when you switch from Container view, to desktop 
view and put my icons that I use the most on my desktop.
