    Yeah, Openbox and a panel is perfectly comparable to KDE or Gnome.

    Come on guys, let's not turn this thread into another KDE vs Gnome flamewar.

    Some of us like Gnome. Others like KDE. Most distros ship both variants. There's no big conspiracy out to force you to use one or the other.

    I don't want to start a flame war here but in my opinion the situation of KDE vs GNOME is somewhat alike to the Windows vs Linux one...

    People use Windows because OEMs shove it down their throats, and because of apps compatibilty...
    People use GNOME because distros shove it down their throats as default, and because of some popular apps compatibilty (fe. Firefox Thunderbird are gtk+ apps)...

    If it was not for that GNOME would never have as high % of users as it has now...

    .. and perhaps the post is flawed? In this video on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l02bhwofEqw), Shuttleworth clearly states that Lucid Lynx will have GNOME 2.x and only after that release will focus turn to 3.x. Anyone able to explain?

    Lucid Lynx will include Gnome 2, not Gnome 3

    The original video from Mark you can see at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l02bhwofEqw where he says (starting around 5:15):

    From a desktop point of view, with Lucid we'll be focussing on delivering the very best of Gnome 2.0. Remember this is kind of the pinacle of gnome 2.0. After Lucid all of our intention will be focussed on bringing in the very best of the new technologies, new architectures, new experiences as part of Gnome 3.0

    Yep, there is always a PPA maintained with the latest version of KDE, even for older versions of Kubuntu.
    Been there, used that. However, it's my experience that a PPA is no real Kubuntu release, there's always many strange little changes, or rather not changes that I think the Kubuntu team apply. Mostly for the better. I did upgrade now to get KDE4.3, but I hope the one in the LTS is a good one.

    I hope they change the default browser to suit - they could even achieve a blistering boot time by going directly to a console session running Lynx as root - 3-second boot time!
