Would you use Hardy — gnome or kde — in production (with a backup machine just 
in case) or wait?  I would normally say "no" without hesitation except I put 
Gutsy on a test machine at Tribe 3 and never used Feisty again.  If its that 
good, I'll do it again.

Also, do the kubuntu-kde4-desktop and kubuntu-desktop meta-packages co-exist, 
or is it one or the other?

Thanks for the insight.
