I agree. Fortunately, with internet, the userbase that can help you is spread
across the globe. Sometime back, if I recollect correct, there was a thread
on PLUG about somebody from Germany.

That is the reason I am sticking with SuSE for now on Laptop, which is my main
workstation. And Mepis did offer good collection of entertainment options,
better than Mandriva, which I was using till about a year and half ago.

You need Kubuntu for that. Kubuntu is Ubuntu with KDE. Incidentally, KMail
is favourite with me as well. I have used it with Mandriva, SuSe and also
with Mepis. If you need, I do have Kubuntu CD and can make a copy.
