OT: Linux KDE Plasma desktop
In reply to Jim Cockfield, May 12, 2013

Jim, is Kubuntu the release to install if I want to check out KDE Plasma desktop? Last time I installed Kubuntu, it did not have an easy way to set the HTTP/S proxy, so I could not update packages. But I can probably set the proxy this by editing the /etc/apt file or somesuch.

For example, you can find lots of linux distros that all use Ubuntu as their base.  But, some use the KDE Plasma Desktop (my personal favorite), others use the Xfce Desktop, others use the LXDE Desktop, others use the Ghome 3 Desktop, while the default Ubuntu Desktop is now Unity.

A bad first impression is what I see mentioned a lot about Windows 8.

Also a bad second impression, and third impression, etc.

Vista was a very "hot seller" if you look it's market share this far after it's product launch when compared to Win 8.  IOW, compared to some of the previous Windows releases, Win 8 is a huge "flop".

Numbers vary. I have seen figures as high as 7% market share, which if true, is better than Vista.
