Install Desktop Environments or use different distributions

I've been an Ubuntu user for some time but now looking at moving to a KDE desktop and thinking about installing Kubuntu on my newly rebuilt laptop, however I have an Ubuntu One account and use it a great deal.

Therefore am I better off installing Ubuntu (12.10) and simply adding the KDE desktop afterwards?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you are just asking about the possibility of using Ubuntu one on Kubuntu, please clarify that. otherwise this is a duplicate question. – Anwar Shah Jan 16 '13 at 15:34

It's the same thing. Any other flavour of the desktop series is just a pre-selected set of packages. So, the same goes for Lubuntu vs Ubuntu, i.e. Ubuntu (Unity) first, LXDE replacing Unity later being the same as installing Lubuntu directly.

Also see this similar, relevant answer in a different discussion:

Ubuntu One is just a package (application) which runs fine on other desktop environments too. This is unrelated to the path to get to run KDE on Ubuntu.
