I know the team is working hard on the new Daryna KDE edtion and I'm looking forward to seeing what comes of that. In the meantime, I'm using the Celena-based (or is it Cassandra-based?) 3.0r1. My impression is that the kde mint is basically kubuntu + nuvoX + mintMenu. That leaves me curious about a few things:
- will the Daryna version be similar? A few mint tools on top of kubuntu?
- Are there any plans to build a KDE edition without the kubuntu influence? I ask because the general impression seems to be that kubuntu is one of the slowest KDE distros available. Personally, I can't compare, but I do notice it takes some memory (along with some xorg bugs)
- Will I be able to upgrade and should I even bother? I've got my /home on a separate partition tho I imagine that can still leave a mess of old configs & files
- Will the Daryna version integrate compiz-fusion into kwin? I don't believe that kubuntu gutsy is doing this but pclinuxos 2007 has it along with ubuntu & metacity of course. I understand compiz is still unstable and I'd be happy enough without it if it meant losing significant stability.
Thanks for all the work and for releasing the best-looking KDE I've seen. It took me a long time to find a KDE that looked anything but ugly. Now that I'm past that, I consider it the best DE I've seen, perhaps outside of OSX, which I haven't played with much.
