Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu How surprised would you be, if I walked up to you and told you that every human needs oxygen to survive? I'm assuming that you wouldn't at all be surprised - you might start feeling a little uneasy that a random stranger walked up to you with such a crazy question, but you wouldn't be surprised by the we-need-oxygen fact. Apparently, people are surprised that Ubuntu is not a democracy.

Ubuntu has done a lot to help out end users, and contributed by paying developers to add fixes and features. You may switch to another vendor because you are not loyal, but you probably will not have any problems using the code that Canonical was responsible for contributing to FOSS. Sometimes you need someone to make a decision, not put it up to a vote.

As far as I am concerned, I believe anyone who can compare Microsoft and Apple business practices to a Red Hat, Mandriva and Canonical isn't just naive, but absurd.
