Generally speaking I think that avoiding blue tones is best, due to  
branding issues (Ubuntu has a red, orange, yellow palette while  
kubuntu has a dark blue, blue, cyan palette). Whether or not you  
should change your stuff to Silver, Orange and Green is up to you but  
I would seriously think about avoiding the two projects which fall  
under one bigger project using the same colors. If it does not simply  
cause confusion it will create direct competition which is even worse.


P.S. If it were up to me, Kubuntu would be purple. Artistically  
speaking, it would look nicer in combination with the Ubuntu colors,
