And we chose to release 7.10 with KDE 4 as well (ie. the KDE 4 Live CD). KDE 4 
was not the reason to drop LTS support for our 3.5.x branch, Canonical assumed 
that KDE 3.5.x wouldn't be supported come 3 years down the road, which I am 
sure we all know it more than likely will due to collaboration between KDE and 
KDAB for one (KDE Pim Enterprise). There are to many large scale KDE 3 rollouts 
for KDE to stop supporting KDE 3, so honestly I think this is a booboo by 
Canonical, but who am I to say.

Even if we decided not to release KDE 4 with 8.04, Canonical still made their 
mind up about not shipping Kubuntu as an LTS, so point your finger at 
Canonical, not Kubuntu developers.
