Default Ok, everyone uses Ubuntu, why not Kubuntu?

I have to say that I prefer Kubuntu over Ubuntu. I guess it'* because my first Linux ever was Mandrake-Linux with the KDE enviroment. I just prefer KDE over Gnome. Anyone agree with me?

Does not! I may even kill my windows for Kubuntu. I just need to get a book and learn stuff about it.

I've never used KDE so I just installed Ubuntu. My friend installed it, I just never got a chance to check it out before he left. I did get the chance to check out his sister though
