Guilty as charged!

Thank goodness, now I can finally sleep...
Btw, aren't you the guy who was going to write an article about LMDE?
I was originally going to tag a little piece onto a longer article (written by someone else) about installing LMDE KDE on an EEE PC (they did Ubuntu on an EEE) but it didn't work out.
I'll still write one up though. A couple of (quick!) question that I've been asked about LMDE KDE:
* Can you add K/Ubuntu repos to it?
* How about PPAs?
* How does it differ from Kubuntu?
* Can you add other repos to get KDE 4.9 (etc.)?
* Is UP5 equivalent to 12.04, 12.10, or something else?
Answers to those questions will help me write up my article, but I'll let you know when it's in Full Circle Magazine. Hopefully next month (Dec 2012).
