Of course they are all welcome here. But you do realize that there is no
Gnubuntu, yes? If you install Ubuntu, it has Gnome. If you go to and click download, you will download Ubuntu, with Gnome.
{K,X,Edu}buntu are listed as "related projects" on the Ubuntu site. To
download them you need to got the their respective websites. 
If you don't like that you should probably go complain to Canonical.

I don't insist. I just state that if somebody says "I use Ubuntu", or
says nothing in particular, I will give the Gnome answer instead of
asking every single time "what do you use" before I can give an answer
at all.

If someone is unhappy with the reply they are free to reply with "but I
use <whatever>"

Users who don't know that they can choose something else will use the
default which is, I repeat myself, Gnome and in this particular case,
Nautilus. Because to get something else you need to go out of your way
and to {k,x,edu}

If the OP didn't find the option in the menu he could have said so and
it would have been resolved.

You? I find it hard to believe that, since you are very knowledgeable.
Did you think mc has the option too? ;)

Which I clearly didn't do. I just said that unless something different
is stated, I will assume Ubuntu/Gnome defaults. I will not double my
amount of postings by asking "what do you use" before answering.
