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.

Haven't used latest Kubuntu's (since 9.04) for different reasons, but I think you missed something.

Muon is only a Package Manager
Yast is a whole administrative front end like MCC (Mandriva Control Center)

In other words... No comparison.

I haven't found a real need for anything beyond KDE's System Settings.

On Kubuntu/Linux Mint KDE/Netrunner this lets me configure: Common Appearance and Behaviour; Workspace Appearance and Behaviour; Network and Connectivity; Hardware; and System Administration.

For my own personal desktop, what am I supposed to be missing?
