I'm running Kubuntu 8.10 for AMD64 with KDE 4.2 RC 1 both at work and at
home (on a Core 2 Duo V-Pro Lenovo desktop and a Core 2 Quad home-buil,
respectively) and have also run into no problems, except 1: the last
time I tried out the Lightning add-on for Thunderbird it was 32-bit only
through the standard process. Someone had rolled up a 64-bit version,
and it did work, but it had to be manually installed. Not a blocker for
me, as my actual mail and calendaring is done on a MacBook Pro using
Entourage. I only use Thunderbird for picking apart spam (for $DAY_JOB)
so it doesn't need to do anything but pick up mboxes from my local disk.
