Since at least a few Kubuntu users are not satisfied with the latest
release of Kubuntu [1] and I was a Xfce desktop environment user myself,
I agree. OTOH why not using Ubuntu Studio? [2]

At the moment we should stopp discussions, it might cause an overload
of information. Once you installed a *buntu you can install other
desktop environments, assumed you shouldn't like Xfce (also the
default for Ubuntu Studio). At the moment the only important thing to
add IMO is to be aware that *buntu flavours are release model distros,
providing upgrades for around 9 month, but there are also long term
supported releases with a support for around 3 years.
IMO there's no reason to prefer 32-bit over 64-bit architecture, so IMO
you should install a 64-bit architecture version.

After testing a live media and before you install a *buntu, contact a
mailing list. There's one minor issue with the installers. Several
people run into issues because a directory called /boot got it's own
partition, with a too small size. This is not a serious problem, but
somebody with knowledge about the installer should help you to prevent
you against the pontential issue.

A user replied to the OP's thread at the Kubuntu mailing list and
mentioned issues with Kubuntu and there are several posts in the
mailing list archive about issues.

"Try Ubuntu Studio before installing

The Ubuntu Studio ISO is a live image, which means you can boot it and
use all the default Ubuntu Studio applications without actually
installing it. Just burn a DVD, or make your USB stick bootable and try
it out." - https://ubuntustudio.org/download/
