Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Bang on target, the new version of Ubuntu Linux is available for our downloading pleasure. Amongst various changes it sports updates to the installer, improved networking, and a new 'Mobile USB' version geared towards the blossoming netbook market. Grab a copy from the Ubuntu website, and check out Linux Format's hands-on look. Or the one at Simple Thoughts. Or the one at PolishLinux. And probably a few other websites as well.

Kubuntu 8.10 is neither brown nor GNOME.

Why should anyone want to use Kubuntu? Kubuntu's KDE is really bad generally and 8.10 made it worse.
On my work PC where (K)Ubuntu is installed, KNotify crashes constantly, user management is no longer in SystemSettings but in a separate app called KUser, Adept is as bad as ever, translations where imported very lousy, and the system tray is completely broken.
Just have a look at this screenshot:
