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.

3. Oh yeah? Show me the KDE equivalent of GConf!

Thankfully KDE does not have GConf or anything like it (binary config files? seriously? Are we back in 1990 and I'm using DOS?).
There's an API for config files and all the config files are plain text.
