I decided to give Kubuntu a try so I download Kubuntu thru the Ubuntu Software Center. I ran it and it runs just like Ubuntu with the exact same programs, files, and settings, the only difference is the feel and look is more windows and graphics-based. The gadgets and desktop looks amazingly nice and the default effects that come with it is awesome. And if you install Kubuntu on Ubuntu like I did, you can login to gnome (Ubuntu) or KDE (Kubuntu) at any time u want with the same programs u dl'd and installed, the same files u saved, and the same settings (for the core).

I tried this distro, along with many others, from a Linux Live USB ( I liked that it feels similar to Windows, but there's something about the KDE format that I prefer less than the Gnome format. This is the only KDE that I tried. That said, I did like Kubuntu, and it comes with a lot of great features. I ended up landing on Xubuntu (for now). :-D
