Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Ubuntu team is proud to announce version 7.04 of the Ubuntu family of distributions (more info here and here). Ubuntu 7.04 is also the basis for new 7.04 releases of Kubuntu (screenshots) and Edubuntu. Ubuntu 7.04 will be supported for 18 months on both desktops and servers. Here is a review of Feisty Fawn, and it also seems that Michael Dell has it installed too. Get it while it's hot.

{It's not globally bad to default to K-apps. It is bad when there are better alternatives. I think you would find that most agree that Firefox is the superior browser. That's all I mean.}

In a KDE environment, it is certain that konqueror is installed, but firefox may or may not be.

Konqueror has most of the features of firefox (including tabs and ad blocking), it is better-integrated into the KDE desktop and is more standards-compliant than firefox, but it lacks XUL and all of the extensions that brings.

It is not at all unreasonable for a KDE install to make Konqueror the initial default browser. You can readily change it to firefox if you want to and you have firefox installed.
