Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Troubles for the Kubuntu project: a number of Kubuntu developers are complaining that Canonical is not answering their requests. They state: "We all from the kubuntu.de-team have pursued this aim [to improve Kubuntu] together, but most of the work has been done by Andreas Mueller (amu). He is not only co-founder and unpayed developer of the Kubuntu-project, but he's also hosting this website and he's taking over all the arising expenses. During our endeavours for Kubuntu, there were made several requests to Canonical. All those requests are unanswered 'till today! Up to now, there is only one payed developer. Since Canonical ignores all our personal and partly financial engagement until now we have to assume that Canonical is not willing to make Kubuntu a '1st class distribution'."

I have a hard time being concerned about this. Making another distro for the sake of using a different wm is silly. Why can't they just work on kde support for ubuntu, even if it's not an option by default. I'm sure most people setting up kubuntu for themselves these days would be plenty capable of using a package manager to install kde.
