There's a person who publishes how to move form Xubuntu, Ubuntu and Lubuntu to Kubuntu painlessly.As in Ubuntu 11.10 the sane GNOME 2.x desktop was banished, I found it necessary to move.

LXDE may be lightweight, but I didn't feel too comfy in it. I've not been a KDE fan: we started our relationship with the wrong foot.

In any case, I moved to KDE. You can customize his scripts to only remove a Desktop Environment by removing the last part of the long, long command: "&& sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop", so if you moved to LXDE or Xfce, you can remove all trace of the bloaty GNOME 3.x desktop that the people at Canonical seem to support.
