I installed Kubuntu, but if I'd thought it would've provided a better 
KDE install, I would have run the Gnome version of Ubuntu, chosen the 
minimal "server" install & then installed KDE. I think this would avoid 
having both sets of apps.

But I read:
    Kubuntu is the first Ubuntu derived distribution. Our Kubuntu CDs
    are made up of Ubuntu's base plus KDE. You can get exactly the same
    effect by installing Ubuntu and adding the KDE packages from the
    Ubuntu archives. <http://www.kubuntu.org/faq.php>
