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.
