I can agree with everyone else in that it's a KDE problem much more than 
a Kubuntu problem. Maybe some folks just can't separate the two.

As I have said many times before. I am _not_ a power user. I'm an 
average home computer user. I never tried 8.04 with KDE 4, 8.10/4.x was 
a PITA until a KDE upgrade. Since then KUbuntu/KDE has just simply 
worked for me. No wireless issues, although I will admit that it does 
get a bit cranky once in a while. Don't use Kmail so no issues with 
that. I'm a happy camper. Looking forward to 9.10.

A couple weeks ago for some unknown reason my 8.04 install started to 
boot up again [ boot failed for months and I never got around to trying 
to fix it ]. I played around for a little bit. After using KDE 4.x for a 
year KDE 3.x was kind of .............. "clunky" somehow. I almost wish 
it hadn't started booting again. I had such  fond memories.................

Treat all stressful situations like a dog does.
If you can't eat it or play with it, 
just pee on it and walk away
