Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

My experience with KDE4 in PC-BSD is similar, and other persons using different distributions have the same experiences. I'm not the first, nor the last to consider kwin to be sluggish.

Gentoo allows for quite a bit of customisation, but do not overestimate it. There are safe use flags and unsafe use flags. I'm sticking to something rather conservative and solid, and having used gentoo for many years, almost since its beginning, I'm quite certain of my own skills.
