    Overall, a great release. But it's not all fine. Intel users experience problems, I've heard of R3xx Mesa problems, Kubuntu has broken language packages thanks to Rosetta, and there are way too many other known issues. If you are not affected by them, great. But if you are, you won't be lucky.

    So where's karmic Alpha 1?

    What is Rosetta? Is it the Apple Roseta or something else?

    I would drop GNOME because of the superiority of Qt.
    I would say you guys both make very bad/childish arguments, and need to think before you hit the 'Save' button.

    Rosetta is the translation web application on launch pad. Rosetta will display a package and its translation status, what strings have been translated, which ones have not, etc.

    susikala said: "I'd rather have Kubuntu dropped and more work put into Ubuntu/Xubuntu. KDE is a pack of bloat built upon half-proprietary bloat"... So I say "I would drop GNOME because of the superiority of Qt."

    What's the difference? A bad argument deserves a poor response.

    It is good to have a new release, but why do they follow the release schedule with such problems like broken language packages?

    That's because they don't give a damn about Kubuntu (they = Canonical). Kubuntu devs like Harald Sitter have already explained that the situation has to improve or he and maybe others will switch to Debian or Fedora. But I am optimistic that the situation can indeed improve

    I'm not exactly sure what what point Harald Sitter became a Kubuntu developer or anything more than a proud Kubuntu user. Last I knew the only project I've ever seen him contribute to was Apache.

    Couldn't say I'd care much if he did. I'd rather have Kubuntu dropped and more work put into Ubuntu/Xubuntu. KDE is a pack of bloat built upon half-proprietary bloat. Gnome is worse off enough with duplicating GTK, and even XFCE is taking a turn to the worse as far as using resources is concerned, imho.

    Oh well, who needs X, just scrap it altogether.

    </halfmock rant>

    Edit: by the way, has anyone ventured a look into Xubuntu Jaunty? The artwork is simply amazing. >_>
