Kubuntu 8.10

Finally got around to re-installing Kubuntu, and tried the AMD 64 option for the first time in about two years, and it’s not bad. The re-installation has cleared up most of the glitches I got with the earlier upgrade, whether that’s due to clearing out old config files or the result of having a 64 bit OS I don’t know, but KDE 4 is actually pretty good when it works properly. I gave up on 64 bit last time because I could get Flash or Java to work which pretty much ruled out about 50% of the web, now Flash works and although JRE doesn’t, there is an IcedTea plugin instead. So far so good.
