Boston Herald, anyone? Indeed they do seem to like Kubuntu in this short review.
They don't write much about it, but:
In this reviewers testing, it was more stable than Windows. Over a couple weeks, it froze only once. And for many applications such as word-processing and e-mail, it was faster than Windows mainstays Word and Outlook. The biggest surprise to this reviewer was the beauty of the interface. It was nicer than any Windows variation. Moreover, there are all sorts of ways to adjust the look. If you cant find one you like, there are dozens of others to try.
