I certainly can't deny this, and deplore the current state of kubuntu.
OTOH, I just recently installed 8.04 LTS because that is what the realtime 
part of an emc install needs, emc being Electronic Machine Control, the free 
version of the rs-274 language developed by NIST 2 decades ago.  With some 
nice gui's wrapped around it, it is a very good CNC program. I run a small 
milling machine with it.

This 8.04 LTS install of course came with gnome, and TBT, the gnome folks 
have been listening to their users a lot closer than the KDE people have, and 
I could use that interface happily if KDE were to just go away.  The only 
thing I'd miss in kmail, and even that has been in need of wart remover for a 
long time.

Cheers, Gene
