Hi. I have an Ubuntu box (AMD 64 x2 custom built) with KDE and love it. I also have MacBook (about 2 GHz core2 duo cpu with 1 GB RAm--new nice machine) and hate it. It's not that the MacBook performs badly. It's plenty fast and responsive even with all those animated GUI things. I just HATE the interface. It has gotten to the point where I use it less because I hate it (point of ilustration: in the Mac user administration thing, to add a new use, you have to click a + at the bottom of the screen--there's no add user button).
Anyway, I am totally digging KDE, so I think that I'd like to put it on my laptop. So here's the question: should I ditch OS X entirely and put kubuntu on it or should I just run KDE on top of the Mac OS X kernel?
On the one hand, I'm pretty familiar with Linux (I program on it at work), so I just feel more comfortable. On the other hand, drivers could be something of an issue. Also, then I would not have all of those Mac apps available (Time Machine is pretty nice + I'd have to figure out the Linux solution for syncing my iPod). Also, the Mac kernel seems to be pretty sweet. It's plenty responsive and boots up very quickly.
Anyway, I'd love to hear what others have to say about this issue. Which solution is more difficult to install? How hard is it to get those drivers to work? Is it possible to get native OS X working under Ubuntu? Are there any other tradeoffs one can think of?
So what do you guys think?
