    Truly unfortunate, on my high end desktop, I have always preferred KDE and Kubuntu is one of the few working LTS that I truly like.

    I agree! Now, Jonathan wrote in his message that "Canonical will no longer be funding my work on Kubuntu after 12.04." Thus, we might have some years left until we will be forced to look for an alternative. And who knows what will happen in the meantime. Will Jonathan - frustrated as he might be - leave Canonical and work for another KDE based distro? Will Kubuntu nevertheless stay a vivid, possibly more dynamic distro which will be more community driven?

    I think there is no hurry to turn one's back on Kubuntu for now. Still a sad message...

    Yes, that is not clear. For now, it appears he's been re-assigned within Canonical.

    Kubuntu is the only KDE based LTS distro out there along with MINT KDE which is repackaged Kubuntu.

    Nothing truly life-changing for most people. I don't see a big deal.

    True unless one is using KDE LTS like myself.

    I hope that you're right. This site supports that view.
