Is that the general view?
I ran Kubuntu on one laptop for a time,
and it seemed 99% identical to Fedora + KDE.
In fact I couldn't tell which I was using most of the time.
I went back to Fedora on this laptop
because it was less trouble to run one distribution.

1. The difference between KDE and Gnome strikes me as far greater,
at least as far as the user is concerned,
than any difference between distributions.

2. I don't think distributions matter nearly as much as they used to,
with so many things being run over the web,
even in a home system.
Even Linux vs Windows is becoming much less important.
