Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The developers of the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution plan to make a new landmark version of the software widely available this week. Ubuntu's public schedule for releasing the software lists 1 June as the date for the new version, code-named 'Dapper Drake', to be made public. The milestone release will be officially supported by the project for a longer period than previous versions, and will be billed as suitable for enterprise use.

My understanding is aside from "look 'n feel" differences, probably the major one would be the inclusion of non-free software with a MEPIS install. This is mainly media-related stuff (codecs, etc.) and closed-source binary drivers.

Being a GNOME user, I've only taken a passing look at Kubuntu and MEPIS. Perhaps a KDE fan could confirm or deny?
