Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Development plans for Ubuntu 7.10 (codenamed Gutsy Gibbon) were announced last night on the Ubuntu development mailing list. Scheduled for official release in late October, Gutsy Gibbon will include version 2.6.22 of the Linux kernel, GNOME 2.20, and Xorg 7.3. Kubuntu 7.10 will feature KDE 3.5.7 and offer optional packages for KDE 4.0 RC2. Ubuntu 7.10 Server Edition will feature some nice additions, including support for Novell's AppArmor security framework.

I don't want to wait 6 months for KDE 4 to be in Kubuntu by default, I think they should release Kubuntu 7.10 with KDE 4 by default, that way KDE 4 is going to be more tested, which means more bug fixes and improvements.

KDE4 in 7.10 is what backports and Jonathan's packages are for. As soon as KDE4 is available, there will be a package for 7.10.

Besides, including it as default in their main release, while it's still potentially unstable will drive users away from linux. Let it get to 4.0.1 or something first.
