Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The 2007 road map for the Ubuntu Linux operating system includes continuing its focus on the desktop, paying more attention to the server and garnering additional corporate support. Speaking at Ubuntu user conference UbuCon at Google's New York complex on Feb. 16, Steve George, director of support and services at Canonical, said, "The view from the Ubuntu side is that Microsoft has too much of the market. We're going to continue rolling out and making Ubuntu easy to use on the desktop and we'll add increased focus on the server this year."

Kubuntu is by far the best KDE based distro I have ever used, I love it. (K)Ubuntu does a fine job, and compared to Fedora and Suse, they just work.

Sorry man, but you should better try Mandriva, PClinuxOS or openSuSE - these are more polished KDE distros than Kubuntu. Ubuntu is more or less ok. but Kubuntu is very rough and unstable. KDE runs like sh.. in Kubuntu.

I disagree. I run Kubuntu Edgy, and I find it quite stable and relatively polished.

And, yes, I used to be a Mandriva user.

I am not going to argue about that (althoug to my mind Ubuntu is one of the most overrated distros around) but I just reported my experience. I shifted from Kubuntu / Ubuntu 6.10 to openSuSE 10.2 and suddenly realized that KDE is faster, more stable and more polished on SuSE than on Ubuntu. I ahd many issues with Kubuntu - sometimes apps did not start after clicking, sometimes x windows crashed unexpectedly. As a result I was fed with this stuff and tried SuSE. None of thoes problems.
Well, if Kubuntu works for you, that's good.
