Tux Machines (TM)-specific
When I first started using Linux about 6 years ago I ran Mandrake with KDE. So KDE holds a special place in my geek heart. But with the early KDE SC 4 releases things just weren’t working well and I ended up becoming a refugee in the Fluxbox world.
I always gave Kubuntu a spin but never felt that it held its ground next to its Gnome sibling, Ubuntu. However, with the KDE SC 4.3 release I dived into Arch Linux and found myself loving KDE all over again. Kubuntu, though, still didn’t do it for me. So when Muktware went looking for a Kubuntu 10.10 review, I jumped at the occasion, and here it is!
To give some perspective to this review, I will be comparing Kubuntu to my KDE SC experience in Arch Linux and also my Gnome experience in Ubuntu.
