Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It is that time of year again: a new Ubuntu release is upon us. The beta version of Ubuntu 8.04 was released a few days ago, so I decided to give it a try and see what new features and improvements they have shoved into this one. As always, this is as much a preview of the latest GNOME release (2.22) as it is of Ubuntu itself. Read on for the preview.

I agree, I've been using both DEs extensively, and while I found KDE rather attractive, I decided to stick with Gnome for now, as it comes standard with Ubuntu, and that's the distro that suits my needs. i could use Kubuntu, but the last time I tried it it seemed buggy and undone compared to vanilla Ubuntu. Over time, Gnome has grown on me as a no-hassle DE that might not provide the level of customization you get with KDE, but still, things work, and they work well.

Oh, and my favorite DE is still Enlightenment, but I've yet to find a distro that provides that along with the ease of use of Ubuntu. Elive is great, used it as my main distro for almost a year, but sadly, Ubuntu beats it by miles in usability and support.
