    Default Kubuntu 12.04 To Drop KDE Support For Firefox

    Phoronix: Kubuntu 12.04 To Drop KDE Support For Firefox

    Besides Canonical no longer sponsoring the Kubuntu distribution following the 12.04 LTS release of this KDE-focused Ubuntu derivative, there's some more changes this cycle. As a last minute change prior to next month's Kubuntu 12.04 release, Mozilla Firefox support is being dropped...

    Why are Linux developers unafraid of derailing their popular releases by treating them like a pet project?
    (Seriously)

    Talking What I learned

    I'm confused. I thought Canonical had paid employees to develop/support Ubuntu?

    Other than that, the takeway I got from the chat was that OpenSUSE is really awesome. :-) That and if you want to be running KDE, Ubuntu really isn't the platform you want to be doing it on anymore.

    They do, the news you missed is that Cononical is dropping Kubuntu, so it is essentially a pet project (after this release).

    I know that, but there's a difference between not producing a separate spin/distro and not supporting KDE use on Ubuntu.

    So, what good is Ubuntu/Kubuntu then? Really?

    What does it have that Debian hasn't?
