Kubuntu Linux

Kubuntu Linux is a free Ubuntu / Debian based Linux distribution. The project is independent from Canonical Ltd's Ubuntu project and uses Ubuntu as a foundation but uses the KDE desktop manager instead of Gnome which comes with Ububtu. Other than this difference the two distributions are more or less the same.

The release schedule will follow that of Ubuntu with releases approximately every 6 months with technical and security support updates for 18 months for each release at no cost to the end user. Kubuntu currenty supports x86, amd64 and ppc architectures and intends to support more in the future.

Because it is based on Debian, Kubuntu Linux uses the deb package format and can be updated using the Synaptic package management tool. Synaptic is a GUI based tool for installing, updating and deleting installed packages on the system.
