I'll think what I want thanks.

What I'm seeing is large regressions from Badger in terms of hardware 
handling[0], dumbing down of kcontrol[1], "removal" of X restart 
(ctrl+alt+del), and this frankly idiotic "notification-if-you're-

I think that KDE 4.2 is an interesting idea and working well now. We all 
know 4.0 was an appalling error of judgement. And I love the speed of 
suspend and restart - if only you could find where to suspend!

I want to use this thing, quite a lot, but man it's trying hard to make 
me walk away. But hey, maybe it'll all work by release day in a couple

[0] Of the six machines I've tried to boot, only one has completed. This 
is a laptop that I've used since Badger. At that time I was having to 
compile kernels on it to run Debian, so I switched to Kubuntu because
