Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

and with both GNOME 3 and Unity not being to my liking, I've decided to make the jump to KDE 4 (any distribution suggestions? Debian-based please!)


I recommend giving Kubuntu a shot. You're already familiar with Ubuntu's peculiarities, and the 11.04 release was quite good. Much better than their previous efforts. There were some nepomuk crashes but they don't affect functionality. They may be gone in 11.10 anyway.
