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.

Personally, I think anyone who thought Linux could be the "next Microsoft" of personal desktop computers was living in a dream world. Linux is a niche market on the desktop. It fits that role very nicely and honestly I wouldn't trade my Linux PC for anything. I love it, and as soon as Linux DE & OS developers get the idea of desktop domination out of their heads (I'm looking at you Gnome and Ubuntu) I think the better off the Linux desktop will be.
