This is actually a happy “breakup” for me. I am relieved to say goodbye to Kubuntu and KDE at least until they learn that consistency and stability is more important than gobbledy gunk special effects.
For me Linux has always been about usability, stability, reliability but with KDE it was constant crash and drama. I am a professional software developer and I can’t afford to lose productivity because Eclipse or QT Creator(yea unbelievable) doesn’t or partially work, hangs, crashes and so on. Also the default configuration for KDE is pure junk. Really heavyweight, no borders for windows …yeach. Right now I switched back to Ubuntu, and I am happier than ever.. everything just works. It’s ugly, but it works :).
