Well folks, it's fun as an observer to see some of the public, high publicity spats that occasionally occur around KDE throughout the blagotubes. First, Aaron posts a rather long (arg! I hate multipage interviews, an excuse for more ads!) interview over at linuxworld.com.au. On page 2, Aaron takes a shot at *ubuntu for being entrenched in certain decisions of their past. Well, Jono Bacon (PHB type at canonical these days) didn't like it, and fired back via his blog.

Now folks, public spat aside, I think that it is true that there are many disenfranchised KDE users on the kubuntu front who are tired of being second class citizens, lagging a year behind on many features going into Ubuntu, or getting broken patches that are only occasionally sent upstream.

To those users, don't believe that kubuntu is the only good KDE distro out there! There are many very popular KDE distros in the world that treat KDE as a first class citizen. I will recommend, based on their support of the KDE community, a few very good alternatives for those kubuntu users that are tired of waiting for change:

    - Legend of Grimrock: Old school and modern gaming combines in this thrilling dungeon crawler RPG from Almost Human Games.
