Well I am a bit pleasantly surprised to say that I’m very much enjoying my time in KDE right now. There are some bugs, as is to be expected, but for the most part I’m continuing to be very productive and I’m learning a lot. I think some of you were right to mention that perhaps I should until the final release. There have been about a dozen bugs that I’ve submitted for Kubuntu 7.10 beta, but on the bright side hopefully many of those will be squished by final.
I have installed Kubuntu 7.04 inside VirtualBox (expect VirtualBox tutorials very soon!). Kubuntu 7.04 seems a little more polished but, again, I’m blaming the beta status of 7.10 for the “issues”.
The few things that I still miss are:
- Tomboy. I’ve tried KNotes and Basket but the one is too light and the other too heavy. Tomboy seemed just right.
- System Monitor Applet. I tried the applet in KDE but I didn’t think it was as well organized or easy-to-read.
Thanks again to all the continued comments in relation to a shift to KDE. I appreciate all the feedback and its making my experience a better one. Hopefully all of your contributions will make for some good KDE specific tutorials soon.
