  1. 5 reasons why you should not use Kubuntu:

    1.) Kubuntu constantly ships broken KDE language packages: http://www.flickr.com/photos/19616885@N00/sets/72157608562200171/
    2.) Canonical’s/(K)Ubuntu’s Launchpad Rosetta software can’t even import language files correctly (see #1), so trying to contribute updated translations via Rosetta in hope they get to upstream KDE is a waste of time.
    3.) Bluetooth doesn’t work in Kubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/810#Kubuntu%20Bluetooth%20support
    4.) All 5 listed “pro Kubuntu” features are stock KDE features and hence available in any distro with KDE packages.
    5.) It’s not Chakra/Arch, sidux, openSUSE, Mandriva, PC-BSD, or any other distro that doesn’t sabotage KDE.

  2. This article has nothing to do with linux adoption. It’s about KDE adoption. Kubuntu is one of the worst choices for a KDE based linux distro, so your not doing new users any favours by trumpeting it.

  3. Which spirit? To sabotage KDE?
    (K)Ubuntu is by far the worst KDE distro out there and even its GNOME support is not outstanding. Debian, openSUSE, Fedora, … all have good GNOME support. Ubuntu just has an ugly theme applied to GNOME. The rest of it is pretty much stock GNOME whose features are mostly developed by Red Hat, Novell, and Sun.
