It would be a shame to make SimplyMEPIS an excuse for KDE 4.x bashing. Having worked some with Warren and understanding the goals of MEPIS, I can understand why KDE 4.0 and even 4.1 were not workable for him. The emphasis of MEPIS has for a long time been on mature code and creating an environment that is friendly for those switching from other platforms. KDE 4.x is full of great ideas, but the code is not yet mature; there are some big known bugs, and there are still regressions from 3.x to be dealt with. 4.2 looks to have most of those fixed, thankfully. I suspect by the next release of MEPIS KDE will at least be on 4.3, and will have ironed out the wrinkles and be ready for sort of user who chooses MEPIS.
