Kubuntu.de has been taken down, due to a lack of response from Canonical to Kubuntu developer queries.
"Since Canonical ignores all our personal and partly financial engagement until now we have to assume that Canonical is not willing to make Kubuntu a "1st class distribution"."
"Unless all the requests made by Andreas Muller are answered till 15.04.2006
kubuntu.de will shut down including its forum and mailing lists
Amu will stop developing Kubuntu
there will be no booth at LinuxTag
To clarify the seriousness of the situation, kubuntu.de will be offline for one week beginning as from monday, 10.04.2006"

And it really frustrates them that they can't be smart about IT."
