    I figure this is (mostly) reasonable, though Ubuntu & Novell/SuSE should have pushed it upstream years ago...
    And it looks like OpenSuSE is the saner option.

    Maxim: Indeed. My Ubuntu computer doesn't suspend, only hibernates when wifi drivers are unloaded before hibernate.
    And if it did suspend, the 3-cell battery would be gone
    The proper solution is to figure out quirks and set them up, set up a GUI under Power Preferences or whatever that lets you (THE USER)
    1 ) Select which options to enable (there are some computers where even reboot wouldn't work, though they're scarce)
    2 ) Select modules to unload/quirks to apply
    3 ) Test how it works.

    Other than that, the takeway I got from the chat was that OpenSUSE is really awesome. :-) That and if you want to be running KDE, Ubuntu really isn't the platform you want to be doing it on anymore.
    They do, the news you missed is that Cononical is dropping Kubuntu, so it is essentially a pet project (after this release).

    Unless you know of somebody paying developers to work on it that I'm not aware of.

    Looks like the CMS didn't escape the IRC conversation. You can see who is talking properly by viewing the source of the page.

    Phoronix: Kubuntu 12.04 To Drop KDE Support For Firefox

    Besides Canonical no longer sponsoring the Kubuntu distribution following the 12.04 LTS release of this KDE-focused Ubuntu derivative, there's some more changes this cycle. As a last minute change prior to next month's Kubuntu 12.04 release, Mozilla Firefox support is being dropped...
