Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It's no secret that when it comes to KDE-based distributions, Kubuntu isn't exactly the cream of the crop. With the release of Kubuntu Karmic Alpha 5, the KDE4 desktop delivered with Kubuntu received some much-needed love. Let's take a look at what the Kubuntu people are doing.

Is it only me that is happy with Kubuntu?

It merges my favorite things I love, the stable Debian system including apt package management and with the ease and improvements from Ubuntu and of course the KDE desktop.

Granted I run KDE 4.3 on my Kubuntu 9.04 installation, but that was one line in /etc/apt/sources.lst file.

No, I'm quite happy with Kubuntu 8.x and 9.x as well, especially with KDE 4.3 for Kubuntu 9.04.

I'm running it on my eeePC 701 with only 512 MB RAM, my Celeron 2.8 GHz laptop with only 512 MB RAM, and my AMD Sempron 1.8 GHz with 1 GB of RAM.

Works quite nicely for all the things I do (OpenOffice, Firefox, Chromium, Flash videos, Kaffeine playing Xvid over wireless, Konsole sessions, and so on).
