"quite similar", "almost 100%", "configured to _play_ the same". Ouch. Spend
long enough and you will get something that is almost, but not quite, totally
unlike tea. But it still won't _play_ right. I want to *use* my DE not look
at it. I want its looks to be in no way a distraction. Maybe restful on the
eyes. That's all I want the looks to do.
But the functionality - now that I mind about, some bits more than others.
I have continued to use Lenny largely because I do not want to lose KDE 3.x.x
any sooner than I have to. And because I always hoped that someone more
knowledgable and adept than I would miss/want KDE 3.5.x as much as I did, and
carry it forward. And someone did and has. \o/
I have already tried Trinity Kubuntu, with some success, but it was not really
stable at the time. So I am going to install Trinity KDE on a machine other
than my workhorse desktop, but that I am using quite a lot at the moment. I
am really looking forward to it. Squeeze, here I come!
