I like kubuntu but I don't use it... I prefer mate-desktop environment. 
I tried several time to install KDE but each time after a while it broke.
I am trying w10 (for fun ?... Maybe to see if it's better than the 
others. But I am very pleased with ubuntu. I tried to change because 
sometimes I couldn't find some apps, ( but usually after compiling I got 
it), but other distros have more disavantages. I guess KDE5 will be 
usable for me in few years. If I had to choose between windows and KDE I 
would choose the last. I remenber I started KDE in 1995, what a joy when 
succeding compiling kdeditor 1 tutorial from richard moore ??
Just a remenbering...
Happy KDE
