Hello Everybody

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 
several sponsors:
"Blue Systems";
the Ubuntu and Kubuntu communities;
still Canonical;

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.
Respectfully yours,
Bas Roufs.
