I switched to kubuntu from mandriva, because it was thet distro that best supported suspending in my laptop.

Then I switched from kubuntu to ubuntu, only because, from my point of view, KDE is considered as second class desktop in ubuntu, and it's implementation is not so polished as GNOME's, so I decided to use the well supported desktop, instead

Everyone using Kubuntu, Save yourselves! Migrate immediately to Slackware as soon as 12.1 comes out in a week or so.

It's the only logical thing to do...

KDE wants to have it’s cake and eat it....

I have noticed recently that (some) KDE developers and promoters want to have their cake and eat it. There has been alot of promoting KDE 4.0 with a big release event and alot of website promotion. However once reviews started coming in (since the RC&#...

One paid developer is hardly adequate support. Don't get me wrong, I like Canonical's software base (courtesy of Debian) and the release cycle is great, but there's no avoiding the fact that KDE is the ugly stepchild in down in Ubuntuville.

I'm hoping for better in the future, but in the meantime I'm experimenting with Mepis, Mandriva, and other distros that place a priority on KDE. GNOME just isn't an option for me.

Canonical is putting a mask. In Gutsy, an update to libxine1 either tried to pull a bunch of gnome packages. Or gave a broken update.

This is in spite of the fact that Kubuntu apps use Xine by default while Ubuntu apps don't.

It is a big joke if someone from Canonical says they give equal care for Kubuntu, when they don't even test on kubuntu.

After reading the numerous comments on this Kubuntu/KDE matter, and as a long time GNU/Linux user and technology professional with good experience of both (Gnome + KDE) desktops on *Buntu, I can honestly say that a serious problem exists, whether by inference or in reality.

My impression is that Canonical needs to be "completely, and unequivocably clear" about their support for KDE and how it differs/is same as compared to Gnome. This will cover "their reasons and thinking" from both business and technical perspectives.

If "it is clear" that Gnome has a decided preference, then I feel KDE users will be disappointed, maybe angry but not confused and felt misled.

Honesty and clarity are and always be the best approach - especially with any large and diverse population like that comprising the Free Software/Open Source Community.

Only then can we all go forward, with a "clear" vision of what is next for each of us.

For various reasons I am still on dial up internet & am a very grateful recipient/user of a free Kubuntu CD as my main OS. Thank you canonical & the Kubuntu community.
