Kubuntu 12.04 review - Precise what?


Kubuntu is the second child in the line of Canonical kings, hence it gets less attention compared to the royal heir and favorite son, Ubuntu. Now, to add to the drama, starting and ending with Precise Pangolin, the company decided it will no longer officially support Kubuntu from its own resources, and it will become a community distro, like the other flavors. This means Kubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin will be the last in-house Ubuntu spin with the KDE desktop.

Politics and financial support aside, what can Kubuntu 12.04 offer? I liked Natty, and even committed it in my production setup, which is a hallmark event. I almost skipped Oneiric, but then I tested it in my triple review, on an SSD-ed box, where it showed some good promise overall. And now it's time to see what Pangolin can do, on the same machine. So let's have some fun.
