What I Did on my Rotation

Canonical has a company scheme where after working there for a few years you can
rotate to work at another part of the company for 6 months. Having worked on
the desktop team for over five years I decided to do a rotation to Bazaar. My
hopes for this were to build up my own programming skills by learning more
Python and by experiencing different programming practices from the ones I'm
used to in KDE.

Precise Ubuntu Developer Summit

Ubuntu Developer Summit is happening in cloudy Florida. The Kubuntu team have been busy talking about how to make a rock solid LTS release for Precise Pangolin that can be supported for 5 years. KDE Software is in a good place for this LTS since we are coming towards the end of the long KDE/Qt 4 cycle and it is a stable and mature product.

42,000 schools running Kubuntu derivative

An LWN article from a few weeks ago talks about Userful Corporation's deployment of Linux in Brazillian schools.

"The Brazil deployment has been rolling out in phases since 2008, and currently includes more than 42,000 schools in 4,000 cities. The base distribution is one created by the Brazilian government, called Educational Linux, which is based on Kubuntu."
