Uhhh, yeah.
K-ubuntu. Kuh-buntu...The K means "supported by a tiny group of peeps working

Again, this conversation isn't with the people releasing KDE or Kubuntu, so 
it's really not important what we "decide" or debate, except to debate. The 
decision has been made, and there is a lot of momentum now, so I don't foresee 
any change back to 3.5.x.
