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.

I don't get it when people say KDE is resource hungry and slow, WTF are you people running it on a 486?
On a half way newer PC it runs extremely well and the hardware acceleration/desktop effects have a built in feel where as Gnome with compiz feel like it's been tacked on and hackish.

I am having the same experience, and it is apparent that most other people mare too. Where it is working properly, KDE (in and of itself) works very very well indeed.

However, it is equally clear that some hardware/driver combinations do not support KDE well at all. Some people are indeed, apparently, having a poor experience. There is clearly more work to be done for some hardware configurations.
