    Re: Why do you choose Ubuntu over Windows

    Yup... that's familiar. :P

    Well if you're running Kubuntu 9.04 (either KDE 3.5 or KDE 4.x), install it with Kpackagekit. :)

    I've used Kpackagekit only once.... to install Synaptic. :biggrin: :popcorn:

    As you've enabled jaunty main, if you use Synaptic, kubuntu-desktop will pull in the... Kubuntu Desktop. :)

    The default KDE 3.5 package manager is Adept, with KDE 4.x it is KPackageKit, although Synaptic works with both desktops. :)
