Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This is kind of... Well, good news, I suppose? It depends on where you allegiances lie, but it seems like Ubuntu is warming up to the idea of using Qt to develop applications. It's no secret that Qt is a far more advanced development framework than Gtk+, so it only makes sense for Ubuntu - a GNOME/Gtk+ distribution - is looking at it.

You don't get it. Kubuntu suffers because people with those cars will be forced to do workarounds. Kubuntu should repackage KDE so that the workarounds are already present directly after installation if you're video card doesn't support certain features.

The same goes for any distribution or anyone who create packages.

I don't get the why some people blame up/downstream for bugs? If your stuff uses broken stuff you can't just ship it to people and tell them: not my fault. Work around the bugs in the software you depend on, depend on other software, anything. Just don't be lazy.

if (upstream has bug) { work around bug }
else { do it the normal way }

Remove if when possible later on when bug is gone and you are cleaning up the code.



In the end, users will blame Linux, even though it's a kernel. So stop blaming each other and come up with solutions and try to ship working software.

(Oh, not really accusing you, lemur, for shipping bad software, btw ;) )
