Sorry, Lenny is a bit too old for my tastes. Same with Squeeze. 

I've been tracking Sid since.. err.. Debian 2.0 or something, 
I'm used to fixing breakages all over the place when and if they occur. I'm 
just not confortable atm with KDE4... or more specific:
- the lack of configuration options available directly through the GUI (I'm 
not _that_ fond of editing kde's config files, the rest of the system I 
actually prefer going the cli route)
- the fact that the new panel system doesn't really work well when put 
- missing network stuff (knemo, where areth thou?), and several small things.

Ginger snap.
