    Is it just me or is all the "best" software for KDE? kclip, dolphin, amarok, k3b....

    Is it true? That's why I've been trying to make Kubuntu work so hard. So I'm trying Ubuntu and see if anything changes. But KDE has all the "best" software for it? I like the "open as root" on the context menu and "command here" and "burn iso to CD" and all those features. Last time I tried Ubuntu 7.10 I could not get ANY bluetooth things to work, including mouse and keyboard due to obex could not find errors. NEver had that problem in Kubuntu.

    I've been so frustrated that if this messes up again, this years linux project is over for me. My next 'oh, I couldn't make X work on linux now something has happened and I must reformat' is going to be done with my XP cd...grrrrr.

    I don't get it... If KDE works for you, then why not use it? Are you having some problems with it or something?

    I use Ubuntu, but I like amarok & kmuddy.

    It's not like it's a crime to use kde apps on gnome

    I just like the look and feel of KDE better. I like the placement of things on the menu, where the system settings are, so on and so forth.

    I realize that you can pretty much customize GNOME to look and even act like KDE, too, but I figure that as long as it has "*buntu" at the end, it's all good. ;D

    Hi
    One question : using Amarok (that I like very much too ! ) doesn't means you have to install lot of KDE librairies ? (like GT or something ?)

    Doesn't look a very efficient way, to install 2 full program system (one for Gnome soft and one for KDE soft).
    Perhaps there is no incidence but perhaps not.
    If yo could tell me more about it I'll be gratefull !

    Yes, but it's so... stupid... to worry about that if you have a decent computer.
    If you install Opera in Windows nobody cry because it installs Qt, or because firefox use XUL, or because VLC use Qt, or because Miro uses Gtk, unless it's Java, you shouldn't care.

    It's also pretty easy to customize KDE apps to look and feel like Gnome apps. I use whatever software does the job best; QT libraries don't seem to slow my computer down significantly. My only complaint with KDE apps is the too Kute for words naming convention and the often complete lack of any relationship between the name of the app and it's function.

    I find the KDE naming scheme Klever and artistiK

    Like others have said, if Kubuntu works for you, why not just stick with it?

    I am pretty sure this is in the Gnome context menu too. By the way, you can customize that menu any time using nautilus-actions.
