   Several years ago I started switching my workstations from debian to 
ubuntu and have been happy. The only comments I would add to everything 
already said is that I recommend going with the more stable Intrepid 
version (8.10) rather than the version released last week (Jaunty, 9.04). 
Two of my four worstations had serious issues with the new release. A 
month from now 9.04 should be pretty stable.
   Regular (Gnome desktop) ubuntu comes with an alternate install CD which 
uses debian's ancient, robust text-based installer. If kubuntu has this 
too I think you will be much happier with this than with the graphical 
installer, which is much slower and less flexible. However, if you just 
want to see what the kubuntu will look like and that it will work, the 
graphical install CD will also produce a working KDE desktop environment 
run from the CD itself.
