ubuntu is based on the gnome desktop environment where as kubuntu is based on the kde desktop environment.
you may want to look at this page for more info: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/kdegnome
and of course the gnome and kde websites: http://www.gnome.org/ - http://www.kde.org/

all the software available from within ubuntu is available in kubuntu as they share central repositories, they are essentially just different ways of using your system.
