Well, I agree that there were some "teething" problems, of which most were realted to incorrectly migrated settings.
I had to delete the Akonadi SQL database and reconfigure all Akonadi agents, but from what I can tell so far, it runs
surprisingly stable on my 8 year old laptop...
Further, IT IS UTTERLY IMPORTANT that kdelibs have to be upgraded, or at latest kioslave/kio_http, which is
suffering from a severe bug re phishing prevention that was fixed in 4.7. This bug is currently present in the Kubuntu
packages and BREAKS all *DAV access. It pops up with a nasty warning about possible tricking every time you log into
any HTTP url that needs authentication.
