"Regular visitors have already read about my ongoing experiment with Kubuntu. To recap, I'm a little worried about where Gnome is going, and want to be ready to switch desktop environments if need be. So I installed kubuntu-desktop over an existing Ubuntu installation on a desktop machine. That went fairly well, so I did the same on my laptop, and started running into stability and performance issues, which I posted about earlier.

I mean, genuinely helpful, not the sarcastic "well why don't you just go die" type that I got on my posts about Mint. These guys were really interested in helping me get a foothold in KDE, and their comments divided into three broad categories: 1) Here is how you fix [something]; 2) Don't test KDE by installing it over Gnome; 3) Kubuntu is not the best choice if you want a solid KDE distro."
