Yeah, I agree. I'm a KDE fan (I do want the web browser to remember my Yahoo ID, which Firefox does not) this is the first version of Kubuntu I've installed and will keep using - their KDE is *much* more responsive this time. I've tried Vista on someone else's computer and it was an absolute dog; I had ghost tooltips appearing and then not disappearing for several seconds, and everything took ages. The only app I used was Internet Explorer. The system was an Athlon 64 with 512Mb. It's the only OS I've ever seen which could not display things properly with that amount of RAM.
Also, GNOME really does not look like Windows. If anything on Linux really copies the Windows model it's KDE (from left to right: main menu, application launchers, OK the desktop switcher is new, application switcher, system tray, clock). It just looks radically different because of its themes.
