Linux has enormous potential and qualities.
Among those the fact that it is as solid as a rock, bathed in concrete, covered in melted adamantium and parked under a mountain.
That said if you leave it in the unproper hands of unworthy myself. The one with the charming habit of installing whatever I find "cute", situation could go quickly out of hand
I did not reinstall my main OS since two years ago, which, for a private PC is not bad at all.
That said, after two long year of field tests even a patient donkey as such as my PC started to feel a bit tired and each time I started my session looked grimly at me like as if it wanted to tell me "So many deadly incidents in the world and you're still here lad?"
I would have kept going, mind me, but it started to get on my nerves that each time I clicked on a link Konqueror had to start wipping the hamsters on the weel to speed up the process (Hamsters did not appreciate much as well in fact).
So I took a deep breath and Sunday night I installed the new Kubuntu.
The magic is back :)
