For me Kubuntu Lucid is very stable. IIRC, there were only 2 problems
with the X server not starting around the time of alpha 2 but they were
repaired on the next day. And when the developers asked to test the
plasma-widget-networkmanagement it didn't work for me until I removed
some old config somewhere in the ~/.kde directory. However, I must admit
that I didn't test many programs thoroughly. I have installed the 32 and
64 bit versions on a laptop with Intel graphics. So far it looks great.
And remember that KDE doesn't come with the new Ubuntu design. Anyway, I
would suggest you try a LiveCD first on the designated machine to check
if your hardware is sufficiently supported.
