i had a chance to install kubuntu the other day. i’m not really a fan of kde, but i wanted an ubuntu install with kde.

kubuntu suffers from the same problem that all debian distros suffer from. first off the  latest kubuntu itself was out of date. i have yet to install any debian based distro that  didn’t have to pull down  more updates after the install.

then of course there is the <b>stoopid</b> debian philosophy that older buggier software is more stable.

i finally had to wipe the kubuntu install because i couldn’t compile vim with gui support. i just couldn’t seem to pull down enough libs for the configure to find what it needed. if i want to do that much work with linux i’ll just  work up  an LFS.

in contrast to that, i installed xubuntu, and found it much easier to work with. i’ll keep with that to see how it goes.
