From Kubuntu 10.04 onwards, I kept trying to get TDE to work with Kubuntu, or 
with any of the 'buntus. I always ended up with problems that made the 
computer unusable. Then last year my motherboard got fried by a power surge, 
so I determined to start over from scratch, and install some kind of 
GNU/Linux, and settled on Debian as the most stable, with the most forks and 
variants, and largest community.

Don't even speak those names! I break out in hives just thinking about them.

Again, been there, done that. I am really liking Debian in general (except for 
systemd), and cannot imagine going back to Ubuntu or Kubuntu, not even with 
TDE. I only want to make the transition to Devuan, which seems to stick to 
the original principles of Debian more than Debian nowadays. 

Only this issue has me worried. Otherwise, there are a lot of little bugs, but 
I gradually track them down and resolve them. 

Nice thing about Linux (regardless one's preference for what kind): it just 
gets better and better over time, as one learns how to resolve problems; 
whereas with the rotten Apple or Windoze, things start off good, and the 
machine runs fast, then it's all downhill from there.
