I'd add one (or rephrase): is eye-candy more important than supporting anything but the most recent hardware. And that is ultimately a question about the targeted user population. Is it first and foremost a toy for KDE devs themselves and the Phoronix-fanboy category of users, or does it seriously aim to provide a desktop alternative for people who use Linux to get their work done (and thus need a stable, feature-rich and self-effacing desktop that doesn't get in the way)?
