I personally am not a big fan of the KDE environment. I've always preferred the Gnome desktop. The nice thing about Ubuntu, is there are a lot of knowledgeable Ubuntu/Kubuntu users on this site, The OS's forum is pretty busy anyways... It also seems there is a lot of support out there for Ubuntu, with Google almost always turning up answers.
I also really like Fedora Core 5(6 is coming out very soon)...
If you go with either of the above, here's some helpful links. I'm not sure how much the Ubuntu wiki will help with Kubuntu, but you can try it if you like..
Good luck in whatever you decide.
