Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

you mention KDE4's UI is overwhelming: is that the standard UI or the netbook UI (which I've heard makes things much simpler/"intuitive")?

(I haven't used KDE4 yet but will give it a go soon)

The standard desktop UI.
There's too much stuff to configure and you can spend a lot of time to make it look like you want. Not to mention the default ugly tiny fonts, which don't come anti-aliased, and buttons are really small. Etc.
