Guide to Kubuntu

Kubuntu tux by madBerry van der LindenKubuntu, 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.

This guide will provide you with a way to quickly find Kubuntu information on Bright Hub. There are many knowledgeable writers here and many of those writers have written articles that will help you use Kubuntu to its fullest. This guide provides links to many of those articles.
