You can almost imagine that Shuttleworth is wondering here if he backed the right horse.

Well...since he decided to utilise the strength of Debian as the base, he didn't really have much of an option on that front. Back then, the licensing for Qt wasn't quite where it needed to be, so KDE wasn't applicable. That's all changed now of course, but once they started down that road the die was cast. It'll be interesting to see if Kubuntu can mature enough to give it some serious competition. Personally, I don't see it happening but we live in hope...
