== Ideas for the future of Kubuntu ==

  * Get more involved in the development of Kubuntu specific tools. Not necessarily creating new ones myself ; rather helping out existing development by answering Qt/KDE development questions and polishing user interfaces.
  * Improve Kubuntu default configuration to ensure out-of-the-box-awesomeness :)
