Exactly. well, then, if the real support is bettern than what's percieved by 
users AND developers (AMu), that's what should be targeted more, isn't it? 
so, more Kubuntu related blogs on ubuntu's blog pages, more visible 
appearance in press anouncements, and on webpages, stuff like that.

and things like that give someone a feeling of being neglected. so he/she 
starts thinking Kubuntu gets less than it deserves. so he/she starts to look 
for evidence for this. and finds it, as one always will find what he/she is 
looking for ;-)

so i think Canonical has to do some impression management, esp toward its 
volunteers on Kubuntu. looks like we agree on this, don't we?
