Pretty much all of the default apps are from GNOME, but the way they are
released is different from KDE. I would also like to know how you have come
to the conclusion that Kubuntu has traditionally been a mess? I know Jaunty
and Karmic had rough spots, but that doesn't warrant "traditionally been a
mess." I am sorry, but the attitude you displayed in your response,
attitude as in talking down Kubuntu without a single valid issue pointed
out, but maybe you should try Mandriva or Suse. Honestly I would give Arch
a spin, as I find it a really good KDE implementation, possibly the best
out there right now.
