Without Mark and Ubuntu, Linux would be still in the dark ages. Ubuntu has brought competition by their sheer innovation, causing other players to be doing catchup.
I use Kubuntu myself. I want it moving forward, not go stale with the likes of other distributions who put little effort in concurrency and size of their repositories, or KDE versions. Canonical has also made KDE what it is today, by their support for Kubuntu.
Wake up and smell the flowers(roses) is an appropriate saying.

Are you Mark Shuttleworth? I'm kinda sick of this retarded bs again and again and again.
And so Martin Gräßlin
Hell from what I see Blue Systems have developers in almost every core KDE project
It is evident that:If there are downstream specific patches they should be applied downstream. This means at the current time there is no way to add support and even if someone would implement support for KWin on Ubuntu I would veto the patches as we don’t accept distro-specific code. If Mir becomes available on more distributions one can consider the second question.
1) If he speaks about to put a "veto" on some eventualy distro-specific patch this means, to me, that he is in change for do it.
2) if you are seasoned about the space-man policy in terms of open source approach, it is your problem. Other people follow different approach about the open source community and if he say "we do not accept distro-specific patch" it means that he *does not go stale with the likes of just-one-distro*
3) KDE has made KDE what it is today, Canonical was and is busy to make many things but no one of those have something to share with KDE. Wait, maybe Wayland could be something to share with kde, but they have correct this error pretty quickly.
4) *If there are downstream specific patches they should be applied downstream* should be clear enough, isn't it?
