If you are familiar with Ubuntu and like it otherwise but don't like what
have happened with Unity and that stuff you can always try Kubuntu and use
KDE instead. I have done so for a long time. I love KDE and think it have a
much more modern fell (not trying to start a flamewar). Still always doing a
reinstall with every new release and not using the system dist upgrade with
new releases. Don't think I would do that with any dist anyway.
