With the announcement of Unity being dropped by Canonical and Ubuntu changing back to GNOME, there could be users who might be considering moving to Plasma instead of GNOME. This led to some of us considering providing a few themes installed by the iso for Kubuntu which might make those users feel more at home. ie a theme which makes Plasma look like Unity.

I would back you on this, there has been huge changes to PIM over this past few months and despite being a huge fan and user of PIM, I can see the point of our many users who do not use it, nor want to. So why do we force them having it installed by default, taking up valuable resources.

This is on our radar and we have had a number of discussions about dropping Amarok. This is not a popular option for many or our users and/or some influential Kubuntu members. At the moment we are keeping an eye on Babe and Elisa, but so far neither are at the level to be a replacement for Amarok on the ISO.

Nothing came of it because the idea got shot down as people don't want something that is considered nagware on their system.
