“Kubuntu will have a new sponsor in Blue Systems from the 12.10 cycle starting in May. Kubuntu is a community led project to create a KDE flavour as part of Ubuntu. Our sponsor since it started has been Canonical who are now moving to focus on their Unity flavour. We would like to thank Canonical for this kind support and wish the best success for the Unity flavour (also called Ubuntu). Blue Systems sponsors a number of KDE projects and will encourage Kubuntu to follow the same successful formula as it has always had – community led, KDE focused, Ubuntu flavour.” This makes me happy.
Kubuntu to be Sponsored by Blue Systems

Sadly KDE (and Qt as a whole) seems to be a second class citizen on most distros, which is a real shame as (in my opinion at least – please lets not turn this into a KDE vs GNOME flamewar!) KDE is every bit as good as the other DEs.
Let’s just hope Kubuntu will be less crappy than it was when Canonical managed it.
