I have no special insight, but I think Kubuntu will be supported as long as

lots of other KDE-based distributions that will be around for a good long

But Ubuntu isn't that hard when you get into it. And you can use KDE and
GNOME applications in either Kubuntu or Ubuntu.

I would say go with what feels best and don't worry about the long term. By
the time there's any major change, if there is one, you'll know what you're
doing and be able to handle it.

You might also like to ask this question on the main Ubuntu forums:
http://www.ubuntuforums.org/. The participants are just as helpful and
friendly as the people on this list.
