Opps! I forgot... the reviews start at 32 minutes and deals mostly with Kubuntu.

LAS annoyed me in the past, this show is less "action" and more discussion, might start follow this show now.
I agree with them that the default kicker need mocked up, not that it annoys me that much since I always use Lancelot, but the "utilities" and "system" mess doesn't look good for a new user.
I'd like to add that the system settings also need a mock up. Display/Looks settings are all over the place.

I've been following LAS for about a year now, and using Kubuntu since 9.04.
11.10 so far has been the best version, but I have to agree with some of chris's gripes about lack of better Ubuntu One, and Software Centre integration, and the "forgotten" feel compared to Ubuntu.

Thanks very much for the link. I did not know about the program and since I "listen to stuff" while working I'll probably be listening to it a lot from now on.
a) the comment about the "back arrow" on the kicker menu not being there and having to click the small text at the top is a "complaint of mine also". An arrow is easier to hit and requires a left mouse sweep where going to the text requires moving the mouse "up" a considerable distance because the menu window is taller than wide.
b) I agree with just about everything these guys said and the "manner" in which they say it, putting little caveats and 'wiggles" in to show that "this is a thing but it is just a little thing".
c) This comment was, I thought, very on point: "KDE truly became the Desktop for Professionals".
d) also: KDE4 is more traditional but has a lot of stuff in it.
His comments on "Unity", especially the comment about the "app" disappearing, his comment on FF, is a MAJOR complaint of mine about Unity.
Again, GG thanks for the link.
