The KDE desktop variant of Ubuntu Linux gets its own commercial support as it begins life away from Canonical.
Thanks to support vendor Emerge Open, the Kubuntu Linux distribution now has its own commercial support for those users and enterprises that need or want it. Kubuntu is the KDE desktop version of the Ubuntu Linux distribution that is commercially supported by Canonical. The primary Ubuntu Linux distribution is based on the GNOME Linux desktop.
“Canonical used to provide a commercial support service for Kubuntu but dropped it last year,” Kubuntu developer Jonathan Riddell told eWEEK.
