Supposedly Kubuntu is very nice and well integrated
KDE is now working on KDE 4.0 which will be a fairly
heavy duty revamping of KDE with an eye to dealing
with numerous issues underlying KDE's core code.
It is supposed to fix a lot of old bugs, including printing
problems with Kwrite and other old issues. It is supposed
to integrate KDE - Gnome libraries better for much better cross
platform compatibilty and many more goodies. Hopefully
by the end of the year, KDE will be kicking things up
another notch or two.
Something to look forward too in the future.
Coupled with X-org's planned upgrades to core
X server capabilities, mainly true 3-d acceleration
and open GL abilities, next year could be interesting
for KDE- Linux fans.
So you want to fight the Master!
First you must fight my brother Chang!
