    As I thought before, Ubuntu is becoming an "standard" for Linux distributions.

    Well, less time maintaining different distros, is more time to polish the user experience.

    Is not as bad as we...

    Well, maybe those people can try Linux using a livecd or from a pendrive.

    When they begin to feel comfortable, they can install to the harddisk.

    Using and old harddisk is also an option, but...
  3. Canonical is just trying to enforce a desktop...

    Canonical is just trying to enforce a desktop standard, because they have a big userbase now and they realize the need of uniformity.
    I'm sure that other companies will try to do the same, like...
  4. I don't think that KDE is no longer...

    I don't think that KDE is no longer competitive... Maybe it has reached a stage where there are other priorities...

  5. Gnome here, gnome there... We know you prefer...

    Gnome here, gnome there... We know you prefer gnome, but that's a subjective opinion... Both desktops have interesting technologies...

    I don't hate gnome3, but I feel more comfortable now with...
  6. There is no need to eliminate one or the other......

    There is no need to eliminate one or the other... KDE, Gnome, Unity, etc, all of them can coexist well if they agree and share basic standards...

    Try to change the audio output on-the-fly while using the sound card... It isn't posible using alsa directly (alsamixer doesn't have that feature)...
    You will have to modify asoundrc o use some...

    I like that idea... But I think that core is already isolated: kde-workspace package...

    Maybe they can follow the xfce approach (individual software updates)... That would allow fast bug fixes....
  9. That's why I wrote in this thread...

    That's why I wrote in this thread about the need of an unified desktop experience on Linux...

    There is too much fragmentation and because of that the users get confused...

    I think that general...
  10. I think that you had a configuration problem with...

    I think that you had a configuration problem with the pulseaudio layer, it's not kde fault (kde only manages audio through alsa and pulseaudio via gstreamer or vlc phonon plugins)...

    Could it be...
  11. I think that there is a lot of people that wants...

    I think that there is a lot of people that wants to contribute to different projects...
    But not having a credit card to do it makes things difficult...

    Maybe adding other ways to contribute...
