In a previous post I mentioned I ditched gentoo for ubuntu and then switched to kubuntu shortly after. This is all in a span of a week or two. Well, I just switched again.
I’ve switched…back to CentOS 5. I picked this desktop once before because it still had KDE 3.5. It was a 64bit version before and it didn’t feel quite right at all. A buddy of mine guessed that distros haven’t tweaked 64bit versions as nicely as 32bit versions which have been around forever.
My problem with kubuntu is mainly KDE 4. There are some regressions I really don’t like. Konsole is much more limited now. Copy&pasting in konsole seems buggy too (copied and pasted a large shell command and it works in kde 3.5 but not 4). Kedit and kwrite are gone which I find disappointing. I had gotten into the habit of using each one for different tasks.
So, my plan is to ride CentOS 5 for as long as possible or at least as long as it takes for KDE 4 to get really polished and featureful by the distros.
