    And one is better than the other, but you'll have to figure that out for yourself.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    How can you tell which one you have installed?

    Ubuntu comes with Gnome by default. You can install KDE onto Ubuntu, or you can download, install, and run Kubuntu, which comes with KDE by default.

    For other distributions, each desktop environment has "About" windows that will tell you which version you are running. KDE has "About KDE" links in the menu of almost every application. Gnome has an "About Gnome" link in the System menu found in the top panel running across the screen. There are other methods of knowing which desktop environment you are running.
