I can't vouch for the server side but on the desktop everything appears in order. There were some anomalies that crept in with widgets in KDE not displaying several updates ago. I put this down to the huge software collection KDE is and over that many version updates I'ld frankly be surprised if everything went as expected. Anyway, at heart I'm not a KDE guy and a couple of days ago I decided to remove it from my system again. It was only there for completeness sake while testing. QT will be retained and in fact I have compiled and added qBittorrent, Clementine and UMplayer which I am using on all distributions across the board. I tend to use the same set of applications now so the base rarely really matters, as long as it's stable. Plenty of applications and all the necessary multimedia codecs have been added from the 14.0 repository at Slackbuilds.org - there is no repo for 14.1 yet as officially it is not out. Most are running fine as they have been built with the "Current" tool set, however a newer Graphviz package did not compile so I was unable to update my version of Wireshark. These sort of issues should be resolved once the repo for the new release is up. Qtgzmanager, a newish graphical packaging tool, a diary, Osmo and Fbreader plus a few more are rounding off the install. That makes it functional enough for my needs.
