Ending with:

  69. It’s brown.

Somehow I'm just not very concerned with the usability angle
after spending my last 10 waking hours trying to get an
ordinary and allegedly-fully-supported (by Sane) scanner
working.  And before that another couple of days getting a
printer working with very poorly documented and unsupported 
vendor-supplied drivers.

I'm batting .500.  The printer works now.

Anyway, I've had better luck with Ubuntu than Kubuntu in the
insurmountable problem department.  You can still install
KDE stuff -- I installed both Kate and KMail which are
relatively happy on the Gnome desktop.
