Welcome to the Feisty Fawn edition of Kubuntu, an open source software project that combines the latest Ubuntu and KDE technologies into a modern and powerful operating system suitable for desktop computers.

The PPC (PowerPC) architecture is no longer supported

Kubuntu 7.04 was officially announced by Canonical on April 19, 2007 and supported with securtiy patches and software updates until October 19, 2008. It can be downloaded as either Desktop CDs or Alternate CDs that support the 64-bit and 32-bit architectures. The PPC (PowerPC) platform is no longer supported.

The boot loader of the Desktop CD edition allows the user to start or install the operating system, start the live environment in safe graphics mode, boot an existing operating system from the first drive, install the system with a drive CD update, check the bootable medium for defects (only if using a CD media) and run a memory diagnostic test.

Beautiful and modern KDE desktop environment with a great collection of applications

The KDE project is quite amazing, providing users with a productive and modern graphical desktop environment comprised of a single taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen, from where the user can launch apps, cycle between virtual workspaces and interact with running programs.

Default applications include the Konqueror web browser, Amarok audio player, Kopete instant messenger, Akregator news reader, Gwenview image viewer, OpenOffice.org office suite, Adept package manager, K3b CD/DVD burning software, and Kaffeine media player.

In addition, the Konversation IRC client, KTorrent torrent downloader, Kooka scan and OCR program, KPDF document viewer, KSnapshot screen capture program, and digiKam photo management software are also included.

Bottom line

All in all, Kubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) was another stable, reliable and beautifully designed operating system, which therefore provided a powerful alternative to the Ubuntu operating system. It is no longer supported and archived for historical purposes.
