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'm sorry... you're basically saying my points are not valid. Well, time to celebrate the financial cut then. I do think Ubuntu is a weird name, let alone its derivatives.

Do you like when other people celebrate the financial cuts that happen to you? :-|

"Kubuntu" means "towards humanity" in Bemba, and is derived from ubuntu ("humanity").

Why is this weird? Not everyone has English as his mother language.

Isn't weirder... to have an avatar of someone that looks like he's pointing at you with a weapon... than "towards humanity"? :-|
