I think Kde developers mostly involved only to improve the
visuals,don't bother about the consistency or stability of current
version.I'd once used kubuntu 9.10 64bit version. Was a great trouble,
good visuals and UI..but nothing was functioning well. So
decided,always to use gnome 32bit,which's seen the best in working..
