    Kubuntu 7.10 in the eyes of a full-time geek

    Jes Hall (canllaith), a KDE developer, has taken Kubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) through its paces and finds much to like. Amongst other changes in 7.10 she discusses, Jes admits that she enjoys the six month development cycle, saying:
    I do enjoy the Kubuntu development cycle. Just as I’m starting to feel that my stable, long-configured system is starting to get a little blase, the new version is just around the corner. I eagerly upgraded to Kubuntu Gutsy when it was released on my faithful Vaio TX. Gutsy has been released for a few weeks now, so consider these not my first impressions but my opinion formed over 2 solid weeks of using Kubuntu as my main operating system at work.
    Jes provides her initial impressions with things such as the installer, the new artwork and color scheme, as well as the new KDM login theme that now contains a user selector. She goes on to talk about the new restricted drivers manager for non-free hardware drivers and the new Gdebi KDE client for easy installation of .deb files.
    File management, desktop effects, and productivity round out this review, which her blog post Kubuntu Gutsy.

    This was a good review. I am a gnome user at the moment, but I can't wait to see what the new Koffice suite is going to be like. It looks really awesome from the previews I've seen.
