Kubuntu breaks up with Canonical, Blue Systems is the new sponsor

Kubuntu found new home. Kubuntu will now no longer be sponsored by Canonical. The new sponsor of Kubuntu will be Blue Systems. Blue Systems has been there for other KDE projects as well as distros, LinuxMint and NetRunner. They would have to deal with trademark issues which might lead to change in name. If KDE were to acquire a spot in enterprise solution, a new name and branding is what it needs.

Jonathan Riddel said:

“With this new sponsorship we will have the independence to give the project new wings and take the excellent KDE Software to new audiences,”
