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.

There's also Fedora's KDE spin, and I imagine the base KDE packages will still be available either via the main repos or PPAs, just not as highly customized.

we do not highly customise the KDE packages, we have a policy of getting any changes upstream except with very good reason
