Subject: Switched to Kubuntu 15.04 – Amazing – Never going back to Mac or Windows

Hi there, I just wanted to personally tell you how impressed I am with this distro! I’ve been looking for a lightweight distro for my desktop pc, it’s 10 years old. I decided to give Kubuntu a try and my word, this thing runs. I’ve never been more impressed with an operating system in my life. I am a much more productive person because of it. Keep up the great work. I am going to recommend it to all my friends.


”Topic idea if you haven’t discussed it already. Can you talk about the speculation of 15.10 possibly being the last version for Kubuntu. Is there any truth to this? I enjoy KDE so I was thinking about Manjaro because of this.” – Tim Andersen
