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 don't get it when people say KDE is resource hungry and slow, WTF are you people running it on a 486?
On a half way newer PC it runs extremely well and the hardware acceleration/desktop effects have a built in feel where as Gnome with compiz feel like it's been tacked on and hackish.

If you don't like unity, don't use there are lots of other options and some are actually better than gnome.
