    huh! odd...

    so, i have dapper installed as 'ubuntu'. when i installed the kubuntu-desktop, i ended up with 'kubuntu', when rebooting. does that mean i now have kubuntu and not ubuntu? (being a convert to kde nuthuggery, this could be a good thing.)

    i had the same thing happen when i didnt sudo apt-get install xubuntu. Now when i reboot i get a nice xubuntu login screen not complaining but it was just weird.
    In a world without walls who needs Windows??

    Same thing happened to me when I installed edubuntu-artwork on my old computer (I thought it would be cute. It wasn't. Bleh.).

    It's just the artwork, you literaly have both Ubuntu & Kubuntu

    If you want the original graphics, you'll need to re-install the upsplash & artwork, but I wouldn't bother.

    I bet your Gnome menus are well cluttered now, there's a nice guide somewhere on these forums for seperating kde apps from gtk

    ... but isn't xfce a little psychotic (apart from thunar of course)?

    nah xfce is pretty nice. It's just lacking some good config utilities right now. I had to configure cups through localhost, so i was kinda miffed about that. But its really fast, really efficient. specially in edgy.

    It's probably just me & my crappy lappy, but I seem to be able to break xfce ever so easily. Other than that I agree, in fact I prefer it to KDE

    haha i wouldnt go quite that far with it. I tried it first, and am using kde now, which i like.

    xfce does have some quirks though. like the world's most inefficient menu editor, and the things i mentioned above. I think any system is easy to break if you give it enough love
