Hello . . .
I just loaded LinuxMint 5.0 with KDE 3.5.10.
This distro appears to hold to the Debian theory of releasing upgrades when they are ready with no defined schedule.
My research suggests that LinuxMint 6.0 will include KDE 4.x.x by default.
LinuxMint 5.0 KDE is based on the Kubuntu LTS 8.04.1.
My question is two fold.
Will LinuxMInt support the LTS with 3.5.10 for the same duration as (K)ubuntu?
and more important
After LinuxMint 6.0 is released whenever, if I upgrade 3.5.10 will 4.x.x. be considered an upgrade?
I have some reservations about using KDE 4. My needs for a desktop will be included (in theory) in version KDE 4.3. Until then I will hold off upgrading.
