Hi Bruce,

Kubuntu comes out twice a year and what you have is the April 2010 version.
It is the most recent long term support version; the next one is 12.04,
coming out in April 2012. The "-3" part means it incorporates some security
and bug fixes, but I'm not sure what the date code for that is. Each
version also has an animal name, but I find them hard to keep track of! The
past (April 2011) was Natty Narwhal, current one (October 2011) is Oneiric
Ocelot, with Precise Pangolin coming in April 2012.

It would not be a good idea to go to an earlier version (less secure, more
bugs), but if you get your hands on a disk from a prior one you can
certainly install it. You'll almost certainly lose all your work and have
to start over with a clean slate.

If you want to know your version type "cat /etc/issue" or "uname -a" at a
command prompt (terminal).
