Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "One of the benefits of the direction that's been taken with the next release of Ubuntu is that there is no longer a need for a separate netbook edition. The introduction of the new shell for Ubuntu means that we have a user interface that works equally well whatever the form factor of the PC. And the underlying technology works on a range of architectures including those common in netbook, notebooks, desktops or whatever you choose to run it on. Hence the need for a separate version for netbooks is removed"

RE: Ubuntu catches up to Kubuntu

This is a step _backward_ if anything, when you compare the two (not that Kubuntu is the best KDE experience, but I digress).

KDE has multiple plasma interfaces/containers, each designed to suit the particular display size/use case.

Ubuntu has... Unity.

Yeah... I don't think saying anything more would make much of a difference. You can do the research into what these things do and do not do yourself/yourselves.
