Will Ubuntu use KDE instead of Gnome ?

Yes, it will!
 I have Ubuntu "Breezy" with the KDE desktop environment, and it works fine!  You can run them together and have programs from both, or you can run Ubuntu/Gnome, or KDE Kubuntu separately, or a dual-boot.  They each have features and advantages unique to their program, and they make a great combination!

Kubuntu and Ubuntu came from the same 'main' package archive.  It's a
question on what you can fit on a CD.  You can fit the base-system plus lots
of KDE packages on one CD and the base-system plus lots of GNOME packages on
a different CD.

They exist, there's 10,000 CDs sat on Jonathan's floor:


If UbuntuExpress works (install from LiveCD), Ubuntu can be shipped on 1 CD
and then Kubuntu will probably be available on 1 CD from 'shipit' aswell.
