Also I really prefer to stick to the name "Kubuntu". A new name would need a
lot of extra marketing effort.
>From retrospective point of view, the partly withdrawel of Canonical as
sponsor of Kubuntu might be a blessing in disguise. Now, there are in fact
the Ubuntu and Kubuntu communities;
This creates a much more healthy, independent situation.
We could consider bringing together Kubuntu related projects in a kind of
cooperative enterprise: with a view to spreading our resources a bit more.
