Alternatives to Kubuntu for the Eee PC?

Currently I have Kubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) installed on my Eee PC. Version 8.10, the Intrepid Ibex, is due on October 30th. However, I will not install it. The reason is that Kubuntu developers intentionally disabled the zoom function, and I have three activities on this machine. How come I’m supposed to use them? Also, space is pretty tight so install a build environment just to remove one patch seems overkill.
So, I’m moving away from it. Do you know any recent, EeePC and KDE friendly distro?
