Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Yes, yes, it's that time of the year again - a new Fiona Apple album confirmed (which makes anything that happens between now and spring 2011 irrelevant and annoying), MorphOS 2.6 released (will be the next news item), and, of course, a new Ubuntu release showcasing the best of the best that the Free software world has to offer in the desktop world.

Hibernation is still ***ked.

I prefer GNOME over KDE, and day of the week. KDE just looks so childish to me, for some reason.

Hmmm...

I really hope you are not basing your experience on Kubuntu!

Kubuntu is hands down the most buggy implementation of KDE4 of all distro's I am aware of. Please use PCLinuxOS, Mandriva, openSUSE, Fedora or anything else in stead of Kubuntu and you will see what I mean.

Maybe they improved things with Kubuntu 10.10, but I don't hold my breath...

Anyway - using KDE or Gnome is just a case of personal preference. For me KDE4 is far better than Gnome, because I really love to have control over every aspect of my desktop. Gnome gives me the feeling I am treated like a child - not capable to make decisions. But -as I said- that's just a personal feeling...

In my experience Kubuntu 10.10 wipes the floor with OpenSUSE 11.3 in performance, stabilty and (most importantly for me) the amount of software available in the repositories. (No, Packman + OBS just doesn't compare to Universe + Multiverse + Launchpad PPA's it I'm afraid!)

There is less fannying around involved as well. Font rendering etc...
