"Sadly, the tradition of using only stock KDE components in Kubuntu continues in 10.04. While the splash screen is nice, and the log in screen is also a nice improvement, everything else looks exactly the same as it would in any other Linux distribution using KDE 4.4. It's not that KDE 4.4 looks bad (actually, it's the most beautiful desktop out there) but the problem is the look and feel is exactly the same as you'd get if you used vanilla sources, and no customizations were made anywhere. While the theme is likely the first thing most people change when they install an operating system, it would have been nice if Kubuntu went the extra mile and customized the theme as they used to do back in the good ol' days."
