KDE and Gnome have very different design philosophies.  If Gnome's (as

I'm not here to persuade people to switch between Linux distributions.
 I like Ubuntu, and I'm happy to go out there and promote it, but it's
all free software.  If you have a distro you like and it works for
you, then that's awesome.
