Submission + - KDE Performs Better Than Unity On Nexus 7 (

sfcrazy writes: This guy installed both Ubuntu and Kubuntu on his Google Nexus 7 and there is a clear comparison between Unity and KDE. While Unity was developed as touch-centric it fails miserably. It was slow and buggy where as unlike it's mythical reputation KDE was snappier, faster, more customizable and usable on this tablet. I also installed Kubuntu on this tablet and I was actually surprised to find that KDE was more responsive, fast usable compared to Ubuntu Unity. Since you can customize the size of panel, fonts and application buttons and borders you can use KDE on this tablet just with your finger. No mouse or keyboard is needed. So, I found the desktop KDE to be more usable than Unity.

Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
