In my case, Plasma 5.2 in Kubuntu 15.04 was very unstable, something like a
5/10 I later used their Netinstall ISO with a PPA to get Plasma 5.3 and the
user experience improved a lot, i would rate it 7/10.
Later, knowing Fedora used the same Plasma versión, but with more updated
software, i installed F22 and with Plasma 5.4 everything worked pretty
good. I would say 8.5/10.
My experience has been actually so good, that i changed to Fedora KDE as my
I dont understand the people commenting about KDE 4.x vs Plasma 5.
The KDE community prepared the KDE 4.12 as a Long Term Support for the
people commenting about the unstable situation of Plasma 5.x, for them
Kubuntu 14.04 and Debian 8 KDE are the best choices.
And the unstable situation of Plasma 5 in a distro focused in the end user
such as Kubuntu 15.04 and 15.10, those are like "incremental development
stages", the complains about Plasma 5 not ready for the end user would be
100% valid in Kubuntu 16.04.
And about OpenSUSE Leap chosing Plasma 5.4, i think that was too early
since their focus now is being stable.

I choked on my coffee when I read:
"One of the most severe issues we hit with Plasma 5 is an issue with the
Intel graphics drivers. I think that this problem is the reason why people
complain about instability of Plasma. The only reason." I use AMD
Radeon... others use Nvidia... they are reporting plasma freezes. I've had
an issue since May, provided numerous traces... it is still unresolved.
It is quite a coincidence that all three major drivers, Intel, Nvidia and
AMD have issues with Plasma - at the same time. The attitude seems to be
let's make whatever changes we want in a vacuum and when things go south
blame Qt, blame Intel (without ever acknowledging the issues with Nvidia
and AMD), blame Kwin. As I have noted many times, I only have problems
with Plasma5... not with Gnome, Plasma4, LXQt.
I completely understand that these issues will be uncovered because more
people are using Plasma5 now, and I'm not criticizing the Fedora KDE team
here or the decision to move to Plasma5 - but this blog post from the
Plasma5 team saying they are "shocked, shocked" people are having issues
and complaining about Plasma5 is a bit rich.
