The issue is that Kubuntu isn't in it to offer the most stable system, 
kubuntu is whatever ubuntu releases with at the time along with the 
latest KDE available when ubuntu releases.

While KDE 4.0 did suck, the kubuntu team did exactly as they pledged to 
to, released an ubuntu with the latest KDE available. If stability is of 
key concern then stick with LSB releases. KDE 4 WAS clearly labeled as 
not for general use and yet everyone went and downloaded it with kubuntu 
too. It's not just kubuntu's fault, in fact they did exactly what they 
always have.

Personally I lay the blame at KDE's feet for that turd, it's one thing 
to have a .0 release with a few bugs, it's another thing to release a .0 
that's barely alpha quality.
