    No updated Xfce packages I guess since Xubuntu isn't participating. Oh well, no reason to switch Privacy Enhanced Linux 64 over yet. I really don't understand why Kubuntu still even exists with KDE Neon being the developer's distro of choice. And yes, Neon is a distro. It's Linux and it's being distributed, so I'm not sure which one of those two words they don't understand. Sounds like political boolshiat to me...

      Well, at least they differentiate because Kubuntu follows Ubuntu's development cadence, whereas Neon tracks Ubuntu LTS with a rolling (or LTS) KDE stack. So the base system from both is different is we're not talking about Ubuntu LTS equivalent releases of Kubuntu.

          I use then both. Neon have some packages from Ubuntu 16.04 that are bad for my game machine, so I use Kubuntu 17.04 on that. On my work's laptop I use Kde Neon.

            Michael wrong sentence!
            Lubuntu-Next, which is their experimental spin featuring Ubuntu atop the LXQt desktop environment
            May be "LXQt desktop environment atop Ubuntu"?

              "Ubuntu MATE has been working on mimicking Unity 7's layout/behavior" Maybe they will change to the Windows 10 look now that MS is making Ubuntu integrate into winblows.

                Mimicking Win10 isn't that hard http://suyangt.deviantart.com/art/Wi...Mate-541952193

                  Additionally Kubuntu comes preinstalled with computers (including laptops) from companies like ZaReason, and has commercial support for people that needs it (http://www.kubuntu.org/support/). So using Kubuntu makes sense for companies, non-technical users, etc.
