Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu My search for "the perfect Linux operating system" this time brings me to the latest incarnation of Ubuntu, version 5.04, also known as the "Hoary Hedgehog Release". Previously I was using Fedora Core 4, however due to some minor bugs it had, I wanted to try something different.

Amarok 1.3 will not be ported to Windblows, so I guess you'll have to wait until Hell freezes over before you install it on a Windblows box.

Wouldn't be so sure about that. KDE 4.0 will be based on Qt4, which of course has been GPLed for Windows as well now, so Amarok for Windows might be less than two years away.

Maybe he was referring to this:

Amarok *1.3* won't ever be ported. The Qt4 version will be amarok 2.0 that may or may not be ported.
