... Perhaps. Saying that makes as much sense as to claim that Ubuntu is a desktop neutral distro, because of Kubuntu.


Kubuntu is a derivative of Ubuntu and as such they are not equal.

Mandriva is one distro with multiple desktops. My point was that Mandriva does not treat KDE better than it does GNOME, nor vice versa. Ubuntu is biased pretty heavily towards GNOME.

My other point was that Mandriva gives users choices with regard to desktop. Mandriva is shedding the KDE only stigma and as such I was just clarifying that fact.
