Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

One thing i don't understand is why people leave distros because of desktops. Debian has most major desktops available from the installer so if you like one over the other you can change.

If you want to change later everything is in the repos; and as far as I know Ubuntu is the same. (When I last used it) So why use Kubuntu over regular Ubuntu with KDE installed?

If you hate Unity but still like Ubuntu why wouldn't you just use another desktop?
