Reviewer finds Ubuntu good, but not good enough
I can understand why many people love Ubuntu and its KDE-interfaced brother, Kubuntu. However, neither one is a perfect fit for me.
First, the good news: although they go by different names, there's really no fundamental difference between the Ubuntu brothers.
Ubuntu uses the GNOME interface, while Kubuntu uses KDE. Specifically, the newest version, Ubuntu 5.10, also known as Breezy Badger, is a Debian-based Linux distribution. On the GNOME side, Ubuntu uses The GNOME Project's GNOME 2.12, while Kubuntu uses KDE 3.4.3.
In short, you simply choose your interface, and you don't have to worry about the rest. Kubuntu 5.10, which is the one I worked with the most, can also be upgraded to KDE 3.5.
