Stylish Kubuntu Polo Shirts Available To Show Your Support For Your Favorite Linux Distribution

Kubuntu Council member Jussi Schultink recently announced the availability of new polo shirts for sale. As of right now, there are limited numbers of men's Kubuntu shirts in (extra) large, medium, and small. International shipping is available. All proceeds from the shirts go to supporting the Kubuntu Council and their endeavors. You can also just simply make a donation to the Council as well via available shopping cart options for various monetary amounts, if you wish to support Kubuntu without ordering a shirt.

The blog post also indicates that upon a successful sales campaign of the men's shirts, ladies shirts will be added. Payment options include direct withdrawal via various banks as well as the acceptance of Visa and Mastercard. As of this writing, there are a few of each size left so it would be recommended that you act now if you would like to get in on this initial run.

I spoke with Jussi via email and asked if we can expect other items to be added to the Kubuntu Store, such as coffee mugs, etc. He indicated that it was possible going forward dependent upon cost and finding the right supplier, among other things.

Hopefully this is the beginning of a new era for Kubuntu merchandise since the Canonical store dropped Kubuntu items a while back, thereby creating a void for these kinds of things. It's also a great way to support Kubuntu financially and get something in return. After all, who doesn't love Kubuntu Blue?

Where's the real-life pictures of Jussi or Jonathan modeling the new threads?
