Canonical Drop Financial Support for Kubuntu


From OMG! Ubuntu!:
Jonathan Riddell, who has been working on the Kubuntu for the last 7 years as its sole paid developer, announced the news in a post to the Kubuntu mailing list.

The decision, Riddell says, boils down to business. ‘Kubuntu has not been a business success after 7 years of trying‘ he says, arguing that on this basis “it is unrealistic to expect [Kubuntu] to continue to have financial resources put into it.”
