this discussion made me laugh and cry at the same time. Guys, thank you for this, because I'm thinking all the time that there is something wrong in the whole thing, but well it does not cost money and each of us knows something about computers, but well I agree it is not recomended for people who are not that good in compputers. 
I'm also interested how do you think that we can propagate linux and kde if a lot of things do not work or stop working after an upgrade.

And please _do_not_ abuse the "political correctness" because some developers solution make me think of very cruel tortures from the time of the inquisition :-D

It was really good discussion. 

thanks and kind regards
