Been messing around it a bit, I have to say this is a good one:

- xmodmap works properly again (X.org evdev fiasco broke it on Intrepid). Gnome was even nice enough to ask me if I want to load up my xmodmap file on the first time it started up. It's funny, but this is a killer feature for me, and the main reason I kept Hardy LTS on my work machine. I think I may dare to install this on my work machine after I kick the tires a bit more at home (and see that kscope works properly).

- KDE 4 is done, finally. I don't know whether it's Qt 4.5 or just good bugfixing, but I'm happy with it now. I have an eerie sense that the keyboard feedback is not as "fast" as it is with other environments somehow, but that's probably just in my head.

Well done, (k)ubuntu dudes and the whole community that beefed up all the individual packages.
