I’ve been playing around with Kubuntu for the past few days. Kubuntu is a Ubuntu derived Linux distribution, based on KDE. I installed the Herd 4 test release at first, but kept getting debconfig errors during apt-get updates. So I went for the stable 6.10 Edgy Eft release. It’s been a while since I’ve used KDE, and I must say I’m very much impressed with how it looks and works. I don’t think I’ll be going back to Gnome any time soon. Installation went without a hitch, and everything *just works*. My other partitions are automatically mounted, even the Windows shared folders on another pc are fully accessible. I enabled the multiverse repositories, and Amarok automatically suggested to download the needed files to play mp3s. Great! Konqueror is a pretty powerful browser too. I installed Mozilla Firefox, Gaim and gFTP … Fun times. The Kubuntu Feisty Fawn release is planned for April.
