I know the title is total flame bait, but I'm really curious about this. This Christmas marks my one-year anniversary of switching from Windows to Kubuntu. I've been so happy having made the switch, but I can't help but feel one year later that the amount of resources that are devoted to KDE and Ubuntu are a great deal less than the efforts directed at GNOME. Don't get me wrong, I think both are great environments. I really like both, but just personally prefer KDE. Yet I feel like Ubuntu, as a whole, just works less well under KDE and there is less effort to make it a truly first-class experience. Kubuntu feels more like a little side project of Canonical than an actual focus. I've been feeling a lot of pressure lately to just abandon Kubuntu and move on over to Ubuntu, not because I like GNOME better, but because I feel like I'd have to fix fewer things myself that way. My impression is that both GNOME and KDE are well loved by the Linux community. Why is Ubuntu so GNOME focused?
Thanks for any insights on this. And, please, no taking sides or political manifestos. I'm just curious if I should switch to another distribution to get the most out of KDE. Thanks, and happy holidays!
