Canonical kicks Kubuntu to the kerb

"There's always Linux Mint KDE version."

Linux Mint KDE is a mostly-community-made derivative of Kubuntu (which is a package selection from Ubuntu). Kubuntu will continue as a community distro so Linux Mint KDE should continue as well.

"Sad KDE is dropped"

This is not correct. My paid work on packaging KDE won't happen but Kubuntu is a community distro so KDE packages will still be available in Ubuntu

"The decision means development of Kubuntu will stop"

This is incorrect. My development on work time will stop. After 7 years as a community distro we have many contributors to carry on development.

I stopped working on Kubuntu for 6 months last year and that release happened successfully.
