Bear in mind too, that Kubuntu is an organization of packagers, 
promoters and software developers; KDE is a similar group of 
enthusiastic contributors.  All of this combined effort results in a 
desktop environment that I would consider "mostly stable".  It takes me 
usually 4 hours to get my system the way I like to work with it, but 
when I started working with an open source desktop around 1999-2000 it 
would take days to get things working properly.  Please send your 
thanks to all of the contributors that provide you with a free desktop 
environment, regardless of hurdles you may have to cross to get to 
using it.

KDE Plasma 5 is simply the only choice imo for a free, productive and 
pleasing desktop environment, and the Kubuntu team is as enthusiastic 
about delivering this experience as I have love for KDE.  :D

You can get assistance on Freenode IRC too. and
