A quick spin with Kubuntu 12.04.1 LTS


After trying to live with Ubuntu 12.04 and Unity for some time I decided to just accept that it isn't for me. So in my quest to find an alternative (Rosa Linux 2012?) a reader posted a comment about Kubuntu LTS.

My past experiences with Kubuntu have been fairly consistent, buggy. But 12.04 is an LTS, so perhaps it would be better?

After downloading 12.04.1 I wasted no time in trying to install it, although it crashed at the partition creation stage. However, this didn't deter me from trying again which went without further hiccups.

Upon my first boot I ran the update tool, installed Chrome and I was quite pleased with the overall system response and appearance thanks to KDE.

But unfortunately every reboot results in a kwin crash error, not sure why and cannot be bothered to find out why.

Never mind, wasn't too keen on Kubuntu anyway.
