There will be two editions of Kubuntu with the 8.04 release, a commercially supported KDE 3 edition and a community supported KDE 4 edition. We recommend the KDE 4 edition to those who want to try this exciting new desktop version and can put up with some missing features." There are screenshots of the KDE4 version.

@ - "Did you mean 'Windows Vista (TM) Enhanced Start Menu'?" That's how it feels to me. Maybe great if you only ever use two apps.
KDE4 feels like two different teams were trying at the same time to rip off Vista and Mac OS X.
I don't see any improvement in usability. Handwriting recognition, standard IMEs that work on any toolkit, voice recognition, those are the kind of things that I would like to see integrated in the Linux Desktop. {Do-panels-like-Windows-Vista=1} and {Try-hard-to-be-MacOS-X=1} are not even at the bottom of my list. What's next, a KRibbon implementation for KOffice?
