Well Tres, I already tried to purpose some idea to change, but I think 
that without intention to do it, I'm just wasting my time......, because 
I'm not a developer and I can't help with it.
Anyway , I really love Kubuntu and I'll keep using it, but for sure I 
will not suggest it to people who want approach linux for first time, 
just because I really want people to leave those horrible technology 
they are using , and Kubuntu isn't there to give them a simple way to do 
it, in my opinion.
