Kubuntu Announces Commercial Support 59

sfcrazy writes "Kubuntu is one of those few GNULinux based distributions which brings the two leading technologies together — Ubuntu and KDE. There are quite a lot of businesses which are using this combination in their set-up. Until now there was no professional support available for Kubuntu users. To fill this gap the Kubuntu community has launched commercial support for businesses, organizations and individuals. The Kubuntu team is partnering with Emerge Open to offer this service which is called 'Kubuntu Commercial Support provided by Emerge Open'."

    A lot of long nights and creative thought went into that.

  • Or one can just install Ubuntu server (with or without a support license) and do:

    apt-get install kde-full

      Actually, that will only install the default KDE with none of the Kubuntu defaults. Whether you want that or not is up to the user.

      apt-get install kde-full kubuntu-desktop

      installs the whole magilla.


  • After using Gnome 2, LXDE, Mate, LXDE, an Xfce streak recently I'm back to Mate, using the default, single panel Linux Mint 15 layout with two virtual desktops next to the start menu and "show desktop" and that's all. Nice fresh air using something without tweaking it for once.
    To be fair I've hated them all, discovering niceties and nasties and in the end.. back to gnome 2 instead of its clones.
    No CPU/RAM indicator yet but I ran out because my top panel was so fugly. With Xfce I had a nice top panel with in

    • Seconded, when I installed Debian Wheezy for the first time, it took me about five minutes to get rid of GNOME 3 and set up MATE. It works. No garbage. I know where the things I need are. I see no reason to use any other desktop environment for the foreseeable future.
  • The nice thing about this deal is that Emerge Open is a non-profit company so any money made goes back into Kubuntu to fund developer travel or hardware. Remember you can always donate too [] :)

  • For all the flak the Ubuntu project gets, Kubuntu is one of those rare gems. I use it as my main OS and there's nothing I'd rather use. I'm thrilled to see it get more support. I know there are Ubuntu fanboys but I'll confess, I'm a Kubuntu fanboy.

    Unlike Ubuntu, Kubuntu hasn't tried to slip Amazon crapware into their OS. KDE 4 remains a beautiful UI unlike the hideous messes that are Unity and Gnome 3. Unlike MINT, Kubuntu doesn't theme everything or screw with the default settings for software.

    Unlike SuS

Thufir's a Harkonnen now.
