Depends on if you like KDE or GNOME better. Anyhow, Ubuntu and Kubuntu are just two sides to the same coin -- you can install KDE on Ubuntu or GNOME on Kubuntu if you want.

Be careful about that question, you'll start up YAGVKW! (Yet Another Gnome Versus KDE War)

btmiller is correct in that the only difference between Ubuntu and Kubuntu is the Desktop Environment. Which one you like better is your choice. KDE is said to be more "Windows-like", but I hasten to point out that when I first switched to Linux, I had no trouble learning either -- a window manager is a window manager.

My suggestion would be to download both Live CDs and try them out awhile. And if you really can't decide install either one and later install the kubuntu-desktop or ubuntu-desktop package, and both will live together on your machine.

Happy Linuxing!
