The OMGUbuntu article mentioned an interesting perspective which I feel is valid: “Many voices within the KDE/Kubuntu community have long charged that Kubuntu has been a ‘second class citizen’ to Ubuntu, an accusation that has always been at odds with Canonical’s financial support of the project.”
Kubuntu users cry, “We’re second-class citizens to Ubuntu!”
