1. Menus: Mandriva seems to prefer to put submenus in submenus... creating 
multiple levels of menu items. While I sometimes do want to 
categorize/arrange my K Menu in Kubuntu, I find that Mandriva's is a bit too 
much. Kubuntu defaults to a single level menu system, most apps are under the 
top category (Internet, Multimedia, System, etc.). Whether this is messier 
that Mandriva is a personal preference, though, like artworks and defaults. 
It's kind of hard to establish a "standard"...

... that and I rarely use the K Menu these days to even bother. I use 
Katapult :)

2. Passwords: Mandriva's configuration tool and System Settings are two 
diffrent beasts. Add that to the fact that Kubuntu uses sudo instead of su. 
So you really might get different behaviors. Try to test the same thing in 
Mandriva using KControl and check if it remembers the passwords too. But it 
might also be due to different settings for sudo/su on the 2 distros.

3. Feisty: I noticed that Adept crashed. And you might have noticed some 
things that are broken in Feisty, too. Feisty isn't due until April, and 
currently it is still in Alpha stage. Like I said in my other reply, it's not 
a good measure of how Kubuntu really integrates KDE.
