Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Jonathan Riddell, lead developer of the Kubuntu project and the only person paid by Canonical to work on the KDE variant of the popular distribution, has announced that after the 12.04 release, Canonical will no longer be funding him, effectively putting Kubuntu on the same level as other Ubuntu variants like Xubuntu.

SUSE devs have given up trying to port unity to their application.

http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2012-February/162109...

My personal stance is that the patch level from Unity is very
intrusive and it's a nightmare to maintain. I wish the best of luck
for Fedora in such achievement.


Also from what I understand Unity uses compiz which is being dropped from Fedora and OpenSuse. I doubt Fedora will port it if that is the case.

Canonical hasn't really ever given much back to the Linux community in General.
