Such a shame. Canonical announced they will no longer funding Kubuntu after 12.04. After April release, Kubuntu will be treated like other community flavors such as Edubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu....
The reason ?
"...Not been a business success" .
After 7 years Kubuntu will die - no official releases, no paid Canonical support, no download links on Ubuntu.com site.
The question is whether the world really needs Kubuntu? Obviously yes, I think YES.But the truth is not like this. If is, then we will hope Kubuntu survive this crisis and people take initiative in doing the tasks.
