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 believe there is a Linux Mint KDE Debian Edition.

LMKDE?

Debian itself treats KDE like a poor second cousin. If you want a KDE distribution based on Debian, I think your viable choices are MEPIS, Kanotix, aptosid and siduction.

I'm using Debian testing with KDE, and didn't notice any poor treating so far ;) Do you mean some specific problems?

I didn't specifically use LMDE, but I think it uses repositories compatible with Debian testing. Why shouldn't it have KDE available?
