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.

I don't blame them for not wanting to support a mediocre desktop that till this day still crash and use 100% of your CPU.

Aaron Seigo will not be sponsored by Nokia soon and is just a matter of time before that tablet experiment fails.

So yes, KDE is a sinking ship.
