Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Many people have expressed dissatisfaction with Ubuntu after Canonical added Unity to it. Kubuntu has often been mentioned as a possible replacement for Ubuntu for users who dislike Unity and want to move to another environment. Does Kubuntu 11.10 work well as a replacement for Ubuntu 11.10? We’ll find out in this review.
Here’s a sample of the new features in this release:
Kontact Suite 4.7
Muon Suite 1.2 (Muon Software Center, Muon Package Manager)
Low Fat Settings
KDE 4.7 includes improvements to the Network Management widget, a breadcrumb feature in the Kickoff menu, improvements to Dolphin’s default look and visual updates that include a new Oxygen icon theme. Gwenview can also compare two or more images.
I really like the breadcrumb feature in the Kickoff menu.
