Kubuntu does not use Colibri but Atayana (or whatever it's called) notifications. Kubuntu
patches a few bits of kdebase for this. Colibri is based on the same code but works
without patching. Colibri is not a KDE project (yet) but I think it should be moved into
KDE Extragear. KDE SC should, IMO, ship with a KCM that allows selecting different
notification systems and Kubuntu should move away from Atayana towards Colibri.

The Colibri package's description says:
provides an alternative to KDE 4 Plasma notifications colibri
notifications look lighter and are completely passive: they do not
provide any buttons.

From this, I think that Colibri is the Qt implementation of the
Ayatana notifications which got rid of buttons on Ubuntu's GNOME
Desktop. I'm pretty sure Kubuntu uses KNotify since the notifications
on a clean install *do* have buttons.

This is wrong. We provided an Ayatana option in Karmic, but not since.
Collabri is a similar implementation to the Ayatana design, but a separate
package rather than integrated into the workspace.

The only default notification system Kubuntu has ever shipped is the one built
by KDE.

For what its worth, the only time I would use the buttons is for Pidgin when*receiving*a new message, and they don't seem to work for me (if this have since been fixed, sorry!)
As far as the file copy progress, it doesn't really make sense when I watch it 0/1 and spin animation. *Seems a step backwards from a good old progress bar/percentage. *I'd rather see a lot of the notifications go back to basics (dialogs, baloons, etc), or go without interaction until the interaction works. *Glossy widgets as a notification area feel bloated to the eye, especially when comparing them to Ubuntu notifications (which is similar in a lot of ways to Outlook email notifications)

I know my argument is based on Pidgin -- a GTK application -- but I don't think a write-up is needed for why Pidgin is much better to use than Kopete (or is a write-up due?)

My 2 cents. *Constructive and appreciative. :)

If you decide to move away from upstream (which is totally your call) remember
that you will loss support from us, for example BlueDevil doesn't support
notification system without actions, an user using colibri won't get
notification such "Device XX wants a PiN", or "Authorize device YYY". Well, the
user will get them but with no actions :p

In trunk (KDE 4.6) notifications has been again improved, until the point that
I'm confortable with them. If you're still not, please contact with the plasma
team and try to work together, since that is what kubuntu has been doing for
month/years and is something we're happy with (and you too as far as I can see
in some blog posts).
