This I really have got to see in the not too distant future. I've never played with Kubuntu so it'll be very interesting indeed.

I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

I have been using Kubuntu for a long time and I haven't found any good reason to switch to anything else. Like I keep saying, Kubuntu is not perfect, but in my opinion, it is the best balanced Distro all around.

Ubuntu has always been great for Gnome, and now Unity. But, Kubuntu has always left me with a sour taste. For KDE I much prefer to use OpenSuse. It has a lot more polish (less kinks and troubles).

The KDE Plasma desktop is nice on a netbook but it's still a bit resource hungry for my taste. tracyanne is right: it is lighter than Unity on standard Ubuntu. I also agree with rm42 that a number of other distros do a nicer job with KDE than Kubuntu. openSUSE is one possibility. I've also been really impressed with ROSA Desktop.

In the end, I chose to go with LXDE on the netbook and I'm currently using openSUSE for my distro.

I prefer Unity and Gnome over KDE. For simplicity you can't go far wrong with LXDE
