Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical has unveiled a complete branding overhaul, redesigning everything from the Ubuntu website to its logos and marketing material. However, what interests me more are the new Gtk+ themes, and even then, I'm not interested in the colour choices and the like. No - what stood out to me right away was not the theme itself - but the placement of the titlebar widgets.

RE[4]: KUbuntu?

Because they ship something else, eg. Rekonq (Chakra) or SUSE's KDE port of Firefox.

There's a Kubuntu PPA for rekonq and the Firefox integration isn't all that.

[Kubuntu-specific] applications lack polish (...) and usually are not integrated well at all with the surrounding system (...), causing needless clutter."

Funny, that's how I would categorize Yast.It's good that Kubuntu is aiming high though.
That said, I don't notice any lack in quality of the applications compared to SUSE. The KDE environment itself is pretty much the same really with about the same amounts of crashing apps (not many at all, really).
