Linux "Ubuntu, once the darling of desktop Linux and the overwhelmingly popular choice for newcomers, may soon lose that role to Mint." I switched to Mint KDE, and have no intention of going back. By the way, KDE4 is finally good (don't hit me, Aaron) - fast, fluid, stable, pretty, and thanks to its versatility, a joy to use after a few hours of tweaking. Just... Please, unify Plasma and the regular widget style. This is insanity.

Too bad that on a laptop, when I need wifi, bluetooth, phone as a 3G modem and quick brightness control, this will be painful to setup for easy use. It's not impossible. It's just hard.

It's not too hard. There are a couple dock apps out there that simulate the task tray. Then you just figure out which apps you need to run the wireless and bluetooth daemons. You can be done with it in about an hour of googling.

Nice thing is, when you're done, you've got a fast, efficient desktop that loads close to instantly.
