Gnome There is a KDE version named Kubuntu, however
Everything will still work. However gnome applications do not interact with the desktop environment of KDE as well as they would with gnome. The differences will be mainly superficial. You can always remove the gnome applications later and replace them with kde ones if you want.
Ubuntu uses GNOME by default. However, a KDE version is available, named Kubuntu. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of its GNOME counterpart
Kubuntu is an Ubuntu operating system with KDE instead of the Gnome environment. Kubuntu is not a fork of Ubuntu, it is supported by the same community and packages are in the same archives. If you have Ubuntu and wish to install Kubuntu (or vice-versa), you need only install the Kubuntu/KDE or the Ubuntu/Gnome environment packages in your existing installation.
There are many desktop environments in linux. Most prominent would be: KDE Trinity - KDE fork (response to KDE 4.0 dissatisfaction) Gnome MATE - Gnome fork (response to Gnome 3.0 dissatisfaction) Cinnamon - Gnome fork (response to Gnome 3.0 dissatisfaction) Unity - Ubuntu's desktop environment (built on top of Gnome 3.0) XFCE LXDE There are many more.

KDE and GNOME are the result of two different attempts to create a free and open-source desktop environment for Linux. KDE was created first. KDE used a widget toolkit known as "Qt", which was not open-source back then. Since some users wanted one that was completely open-source, even the toolkit, the GNOME project was created. Many users still liked KDE, though. Those who did not want to switch stuck with KDE. Those who insisted on free software chose GNOME. Later, the Qt toolkit was open-sourced, which removed much of the incentive for GNOME to exist, but enough users at that point like GNOME better, so development has continued.

That is a matter of user preference, and not everyone will agree with either the verdict or the criteria for choosing.
By default, Ubuntu comes with Ubuntu (Unity) and Unity 2D. Kubuntu comes with KDE. You can install other desktop environments from any Ubuntu desktop. For example, GNOME Shell comes with GNOME 3.2, GNOME Classic, and GNOME Fallback.
There are many that can be chosen with a variety of backends. Examples include Gnome, KDE, LXDE, XFCE... etc
