[Solved] KDE 4.3 64 bit?

Just out of curiosity, will there ever be a KDE 4.3 64 bit?
I tried out a couple of live cd's and really like KDE 4.3, but would like to stay with Mint.
Right now my OS is Mint Gloria 64 and I am really loving it.
Anyway just curious, and keep up the good work guys whether for Mint or KDE.

[Solved] Can I switch to kernel 2.6.30?

I have installed Mint 7 (32 bit) (kernel 2.6.28) on my HP (DV6626US) laptop. Everything is working just great and I am wondering how safe is it to install the new 2.6.30 kernel?
Would there be any repercussions I should be aware of?

BTW - Great distro and many cudos to the Mint team.
