    There are plenty of Ubuntu ones, I have one, but would be interested
    in seeing Ubuntu's version of KDE.

    They don't ship them for free like Ubuntu does. It's a separate project.

    Yeah, I've only got the install Cds, sorry.
    Its not really that separate if its in the same repositaries.

    I don't think there is a LiveCD for Kubuntu as such - so there's no
    way of seeing what it'd look like without actually installing Ubuntu
    then doing the apt-get dance - as someone else mentioned.

    There are both separate live and install CDs for Kubuntu just as there
    are for Ubuntu, for the same three platforms (ppc, x86, x86-64). I know
    as I sell them both.

    Well since there is a link to it from the official kubuntu website I would
    have thought you were able to find that yourself. Or do you need your
    nappies changed as well.

    try using and your brains and finding it, it's a good
    exercise for you.

    Oh by the way, if anyone was planning on downloading it, don't get the
    5.04.3 / KDE 3.4.1 version. There are issues with it and it won't boot
    up on many systems. Better to go for the 5.04 version instead. Or you
    could wait until next month when the 5.10 version will be released.

    doh - that should have read 5.04.5 / KDE 3.4.2. I don't know if there
    are the same issues with the 5.04.3 release.

    They were being given away at a recent Wellington LUG meeting.

    Well, thank you kindly for that. Did the dog just eat your favourite
    teddy bear? I wonder how many more customers you may get if you were a
    tad more polite.

    Yes, but have you tried them? ;-) Sorry, could not resist.

    Yep. I've tried the live version of Kubuntu. I can't remember if I used
    the install version or not. If I did it would have been on my iBook.
    Then again it may only have been Ubuntu I tried on that.

    Its plain KDE like Knoppix but with the same sudo config as Ubuntu
    It comes without java j2re or flash plugins, or mpeg, its very much
    Debian testing
