Another "Recommend me a distro thread" KDE Version
Hey all, I have seen these before, but I wanted to get some fresh info.
I have had kubuntu 10.10 on my amd 3800+ with 1gb ram for a while, but was wanting to get more up to date software..namely firefox and thunderbird.
So i put linux mint. Not liking the new gnome, and being used to kde, i put kde on it. It's super slow. Kubuntu 10.10 was very fast and worked great.
What do you all recommend that I put on this old but not too old hardware? XFCE works fine but I feel like it's missing a lot of good programs. Thunar sucks, I can't put a folder view type widget that shows the files and lets you open them directly, desktop background photo changing every hour, etc etc. Lots of little things i got used to in kde.
I'd like to get a computer that will still be getting updated versions of firefox and whatnot for at least a year or two before I am forced to upgrade.
