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.

Yeah, way to go.

You still can't say it doesn't work for me with any authority, because it works for many,many other people
myself included running very limited hardware.

So unless you can be a bit more constructive than "runs like a dog" you're always going to sound like a troll.

My experience is no less valuable than yours. You saying "it runs fine for me and many people!" is just as meaningless as my "it runs like a dog for me and many other people!"

In other words, if I'm sounding like a troll - than so are you.

As long as you don't specify what in the software compilation that performs "like a dog", then yes, your experience is entirely worthless. The only thing I can think of in the "general experience" of KDE that doesn't perform well, is resizing windows. It certainly is a negative point, but you probably spend far more time bitching about KDE than resizing windows on an average day.

I must say that you aren't impartial speaking of Kde. You have a long history of (only) negative comments on KDE and many of them aren't that rational. Ok you don't like KDE but you are also a news reporter.

Normally you say KDE doesn't works. Maybe is your hardware, maybe is a configuration problem I don't know. And I don't need to know it. Have you send a bug report?

Maybe you can't because the fact is that KDE works:
for many people (including me, my thinkpad x41, and my core duo PC).
for the rewiers of arts technica for instance.

The power of being an editor was the responsibility of being the most impartial and rational when you make a statement.

Kde 4 is broken is old gnome fanboy talk. Right now there are no facts supporting that
That phrase is plain wrong.
