Ok, I did read the article... but somehow I missed that detail. I wish I could say that the article was edited and that part added after I commented... but that would be a lie. In an attempt to throw off some of the embarrisment, I think there are more packages associated with Gnome than KDE so again, it still might be worth it for those who want both to download / install Ubuntu rather than Kubuntu. I mean, Kubuntu only has Konqueror for a browser. Now Konqueror is nice, but I want more...and I have to have GIMP too!
I have installed both and I can tell you that Kubuntu has so few applications... it's like there isn't much there... other than KDE... and a subset of KDE at that (no kdeedu, kdegames, etc). Compared to say Knoppix (where they use miraculous compression), it is skimpy.
I have to admit though, it is good to see both install disks available.
