Because "a few computers still have limited resources means that software should implement fewer features and never take advantage of resource abundance" is a silly argument and just leads to unnecessary skimpiness and lends itself as the ideal fallback for whining about getting "left behind" by progress.

No. Kubuntu does not attempt to be a minimalist distribution for low-resource computers. While it strives to accommodate a wide range, it should never be held back to low denominators. Furthermore, support for 32-bit hardware should have been dropped with 12.04. Software must always push hardware.
