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.

Linux in general has pretty much failed on the desktop. It's ok for servers, and thats about it. It's no wonder the Ubuntu guys are trying to find ways to boost revenue and sooner of later Shuttleworth will call it a day in his plans to be the next Microsoft.
