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.

Suggestion:

- Rename Kubuntu to something else (and please, a good listenable and pleasant name, enough of this ooga-ooga buntu crap).

- Ship a DVD full of applications, including out of the box integration with GTK 2 and 3.

- Ship all media codecs and stuff out of the box.

- Select the highest rated set of applications instead of K* traditional ones (eg. VLC, LibreOffice, Thunderbird, Firefox).

after that, prepare for going after Linux Mint.
