Kubuntu, pronounced koo-boon-too, is a derivative of the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution. Ubuntu uses the GNOME desktop, Kubuntu uses KDE. The biggest difference between them is that Ubuntu uses GTK+/GNOME and Kubuntu uses KDE/Qt. For e-mail, for instance, we use Kontact on Kubuntu instead of the Evolution Ubuntu equivalent. The KDE vs GNOME wars are always ongoing in the different forums. But whether you choose to become an Ubuntu user or Kubuntu evangelist, the most important part is that you switched away from Windows.
