Well, I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on the new version of (K)Ubuntu (since the Debian 4 is not released yet), so I made a clean install of the Feisty Fawn Beta. (I can’t remember when was the last time I did that instead of just apt-get dist-upgrade)

KDE is lean and mean … and so is Amarok and every other piece of software I use on the daily basis.

The requirements for building the KDE’s trunk are complete excluding the strigi which has to be downloaded from SVN.

There were a couple of annoyances that are supposed to make the system more user-friendly, but are now gone from my system … (the main example being the network manager) … and after two days of fixing the glitches and making the system more Debian-like in some areas (removing the over-the-top-user-friendly stuff), I can say that now I’m completely satisfied.

This peace could be only disturbed by KDE 4 entering the beta stage.
