I still can't get over the decision to switch browser-mode nautilus (yuck) to default. Guess I switched to slack just in time. More on topic, I'm not sure I get the point of kubuntu. It looks like every other KDE distro out there--why make a new one?

Why did I get rated down for asking a question?

According to every survey out there, KDE is a more popular desktop than gnome.

As far as ugly goes, it depends how you theme it. You can make it as ugly or as beautiful as you want.

Both DEs are good - stop trying to start flamewars.

Trolling 1: Because you complain about a default setting and argues that that's the chief reason to sitch to another distro.

Trolling 2: The ancient "why make another distro" question. People like choice, people are free to do what they want, live with it!

Also, you didn't ask a question - you made a statement and put a question mark at the end of it.
