Something I rather enjoy doing is stripping bloated stuff to the bare essentials.
I'm getting rid of xteddy, and such stuff.
I thought I might have a go at some of KDE apps: klettres for instance. With
apt-get remove klettres
i got an awesome list of libs, and apps, and things like Python, that would be removed while some other stuff would be installed.
For instance Kedit would be removed.
So I'm wondering if KDE is one unit in fact, and if you remove one bit of it you break it. Is this the case?
Which means that upgrading must take hours on a dial-up connection--does it?
