Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth writes: "We are a somewhat chaotic crowd, the software libre army. Thousands of projects (hundreds of thousands, if you consider Sourceforge as a reference point). Hundreds of thousands of contributing developers from virtually every country and timezone. We are a very loosely coupled bunch. But sometimes I wish it were easier to keep track of changes and have a slightly clearer view of progress across that whole galaxy." Eugenia agrees.

"KDE... So does Mark Shuttleworth"

He never said he preferred it, he stated that he was using it on his desktop. Such a move could be a simple gesture of showing that he is dedicated to making sure that Kubuntu is a quality distro that is suitable for everyday use. "Eating your own dog food" so to speak.

For reference see: http://www.kubuntu.org/announcements/kde-commitment.php

He may prefer it, then again he may not. Whether or not he does, lets not put words in Mr. Shuttleworth's mouth. I'm sure he would prefer it that way.
