We did, but it wasn't possible for Canonical to maintain PPC
repositories, so they were dropped.  There is no group of people at
Canonical preparing PPC based .iso files - they all come from
unofficial sources and may break your installation when you update.

Debian also have stopped publishing .iso files for some architectures
(not PPC) because they just cannot get volunteers to work on them, so
its not a problem specific to Kubuntu.

If only Knoppix had a Ubuntu-like installer, I'd go there......but I'm
not sure if they support PPC...
