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.

I've run Kubuntu for a few years now, since the emergence of KDE4. There has been some troubling moments on the way for sure.
11.04 has been the best so far. I actually use it for work on my Core i7 ASUS. When I read "sluggish" from posters here I do break out a smirk. Not a word I would use for any OS on modern day hardware IMO.
If you want to run 11.04/11.10 on a 5 year old PC, then sure you will notice a difference between GNOME/KDE/XFCE/etc.
