kubuntu (KDE) has had most of these features for along time and gnome is still lagging in a lot of areas. It is perplexing why gnome is more popular. It is also disappointing that so much time is spent on ubuntu and kubuntu is unnoticed. It reminds me of the story of Cinderella.

Well they did have the display config thing before it made it to ubuntu. In-fact the one in ubuntu is based off of the work on the kde one.

Your ready to fight, you need to see a Doctor about that! I would like to just see Kubuntu get as much effort as they put in to Ubuntu. None of the new stuff has any thing to do with Kubuntu.
