I am not sure I can explain this so that you and the list can
understand. When I had ubuntu 8.04 and installed the KDE desktop I think
it was 3.5 from a windows user who had just switched it seemed like
home. As time evolved  and upgrades evolved as well I became
disenchanted with KDE and switched to 8.10 leaving KDE behind. That
being said I felt like I had cheated.
I have Lenny and am willing to go that route with KDE, but whether its
mindset or what kubuntu as an OS vs. ubuntu with KDE desktop are 2
different animals. This could well be comprehension challenge.
Prior to installing 9.04 ubuntu I installed 9.04 Kubuntu and just
setting up the desktop was the most challenging thing I have ever done
in my short Linux experience. So I uninstalled
So based on that admission if there is an ability to ease into KDE in
Lenny I am ready to give it a shot.
