That is kubuntu Jaunty alpha4 I installed on the other drive.  And it pulled 
in about 300 updates and I installed another 110 packages last night when I 
was booted to it, and seemed to be pretty stable to me. KDE4 sure is 
different, I definitely don't like the new menu lashup at all.  But if you 
look long enough, most of it is there.  Its also not as fast subjectively.
