[ubuntu-studio-users] ubuntustudio and KDE

Sorry about the earlier email, I hit send accidentally before I was ready.
Here's the complete email.

I want to make this as clear as possible: NOBODY IS FORCING YOU TO CHANGE.

Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS will remain Xfce. Support will continue until

April 2023.

Ubuntu Studio 20.10 and onward will be KDE Plasma.

*Ubuntu Studio Installer lets you put Ubuntu Studio on whatever

official flavor of Ubuntu you decide, and therefore whatever Desktop

Environment you decide.* For instance, to use Xfce with Ubuntu Studio

20.10 you'd install Xubuntu and then use Ubuntu Studio Installer

(https://ubuntustudio.org/ubuntu-studio-installer) to install the

tools and backend configurations on Xubuntu. You can do the same with

Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie, Ubuntu Kylin, and Ubuntu MATE.

At no point do we ever recommend installing an additional desktop

environment on any flavor of Ubuntu as we, and other Ubuntu flavors,

simply cannot support it.

For those that wish to preview Ubuntu Studio with the KDE Plasma

switchover complete, you can look at the Ubuntu Studio Groovy Gorilla

daily images at http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntustudio/dvd/current.

Please stop assuming the worst.
