Halloween is Ubuntu time. ;)
The upgrade from Hardy to Intrepid was smooth and without any incident. Kudos to the developers.
Upgrading Kubuntu delights you with deleting KDE 3.5.9, and installing 4.1.2.
It is quite all right, as I was of course prepared. And it's just a virtual machine anyway. ;)
I thus was once again required to deal with KDE 4. Hm. I'm not immune to the looks of it, nor do I ignore the obvious improvements made, for example, in the case of Kate. However, I keep wondering why the KDE developers have chosen to play a hide-and-seek with their users. The best example for this behavior is Dolphin...how do you actually type the name of a path?
It's so easy. Just move your mouse next to the path name, in the title bar, until you see "click to edit location". Click there! See! It's so easy!
OMG! *slapforehead* *g*
