Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I installed my first Linux distro in December of 2002, and I've
been using Linux full-time instead of Windows since July of 2006.
I've been using Debian since December of 2007 — I started
with Etch, then moved to Lenny, and then upgraded Lenny to Squeeze
a year ago.
"But because I had read so many negative things about both KDE4
and grub2 (grub-pc), I refused those upgrades when Squeeze first
offered them to me several months ago — and, ever since then,
I've continued to hold back all of the upgrades (currently 160)
that have wanted to switch my two PCs from KDE 3.5.10 to KDE4.
"But a few days ago, I bought a new (used) 64-bit PC. Because
I've read a lot of positive things about KDE 4.3.4, and because,
for the first time ever, I have the luxury of my wife and I being
able to continue using my other two PCs while I experiment with my
new one, I decided to take the plunge and do a full-blown, fresh
install of 64-bit Debian Squeeze on my new PC, using ext4
partitions, KDE4 and grub2.
"So, two days ago, that's exactly what I did."
