one of the things i don't like about linux distros is that they don't
actually work much in the features. look at kubuntu for example. they
take the KDE desktop as it is from KDE, do some editing on it to become
*buntu style, and put it in the repos, the same for all apps, how much
development are the distro devs actually doing? packaging and debugging?
the distro needs more actual coding and work from the developers, create
their own unique style. i can install a debian system, put KDE4 on it,
and do some personal customizations on it, like widgets and wallpaper
and etc... , and then take kubuntu intrepid, and apply the same
customizatins, show the 2 systems to an average user, and i bet you
anything he won't make the difference between them! why? because what he
is seeing is neither debians work, nor ubuntu's work, this is KDE's work!
