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.

You misunderstand the implications.

1. Kubuntu does not equal KDE as a whole.
2. Kubuntu is a community distro and a lack of funding does not equal death. Many distros exist with $0 funding.
3. You have been sniffing glue if you think that KDE is less configurable than then Gnome3.

Please think before you speak.


1. And where did I say it did? (Hint: I didn't)
2. Now that the rats have started deserting that sinking ship, it's only a matter of time.
3. Oh yeah? Show me the KDE equivalent of GConf!

Clearly you're just trolling because you're jealous of GNOME's popularity and success.
