Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Donating to software projects - or, more accurately, open source projects. It's hardly new, it's hardly rare, and I'm sure most of us have donated at some point. That's probably why Canonical has opened Ubuntu up for donations - but with a twist.

Canonical didn't take away KDE from Kubuntu, their KDE centric desktop.

No. They only ditched it in favor of Unity. Its now being run by another corp.

Canonical didn't take away LXDE from Lubuntu, their LXDE centric desktop.

Canonical didn't take away XFCE from Xubuntu, their XFCE centric desktop.

Lubuntu and Xubuntu are community driven and not supported by Canonical in anyway. If they were official Canonical products, their users would have had Unity forced on them.
